Pine Bluff, AR- October 25,1863 - Loss This was a very interesting battle where hemp bales were used for protection by the Yankees in the town square. This would be a neat one to see re-enacted!

Little Blue, MO (Westport) Oct. 21 - WIN

These two last defeats spelled the end of Price's Army and their efforts to free Missouri. I surely appreciate the efforts of the 8th MO Cavalry to protect their families and their beliefs of self-government in true Jeffersonian style.
I also appreciate those who fought for the Union, as the same can be said of their efforts. Well, except that little bit of local vs. federal government. I don't agree with that, but all that is neither here nor there!
