  • As the Civil War was drawing to a close, former Missouri governor Sterling Price led his army on one last desperate campaign to retake his home state for the Confederacy, part of a broader effort to tilt the upcoming 1864 Union elections against Abraham Lincoln and the Republicans In The Collapse of Price s Raid The Beginning of the End in Civil War Missouri , Mark A LAs the Civil War was drawing to a close, former Missouri governor Sterling Price led his army on one last desperate campaign to retake his home state for the Confederacy, part of a broader effort to tilt the upcoming 1864 Union elections against Abraham Lincoln and the Republicans In The Collapse of Price s Raid The Beginning of the End in Civil War Missouri, Mark A Lause examines the complex political and social context of what became known as Price s Raid, the final significant Southern operation west of the Mississippi River.The success of the Confederates would be measured by how long they could avoid returning south to spend a hungry winter among the picked over fields of southwestern Arkansas and northeastern Texas As Price moved from Pilot Knob to Boonville, the Raid brutalized and alienated the people it supposedly wished to liberate With Union cavalry pushing out of Jefferson City, the Confederates took Boonville, Glasgow, and Sedalia in their stride, and fostered a wave of attacks across northern Missouri by guerrillas and organizations of new recruits With the Missouri River to their north and the ravaged farmlands to their south, Price s men continued west.At Lexington, Confederates began encountering a second Federal army newly raised in Kansas under General Samuel R Curtis A running battle from the Little Blue through Independence to the Big Blue marked the first of three days of battle in the area of Kansas City, as the two Federal armies squeezed the Confederate forces between them Despite a self congratulatory victory, Union forces failed to capture the very vulnerable army of Price, which escaped down the Kansas line.The follow up to Price s Lost Campaign The 1864 Invasion of Missouri, Lause s The Collapse of Price s Raid is a must have for any reader interested in the Civil War or in Missouri state history.

    Sterling Price was one of the leading generals from across the Mississippi. He had served as governor of Missouri and, later in the Civil War, wanted to lead a campaign to free Missouri from the Federal control of the state. The resulting campaign was a mess--with both sides mismanaging key parts of the maneuvering.Why did Andrew Jackson Smith, an underappreciated Union general, never get into combat. Appallingly bad strategic thinking by the head of the Missouri district--General William Rosecr [...]
