Was interesting to see you state that the South was mostly defensive moves. Has me thinking about that. I guess so. Interesting.

But then thought of the last major cavalry battle that happend to be in Kansas about fifty miles from where I sit now. It was the culmination of a march of Confederate General Sterling Price which went up through the middle of Missouri to St Louis then across west to above present day KC then down parallel to the Kansas border on the Kansas side to about Fort Scott . He was being followed by Union troops .

The Battle of Mine Creek.


He was attempting to draw federa troops west away from the Eastern area to help Lee.

Didnt work
If we don't count our blessings
We are just wasting our time
