  • Thanks for the history lesson! I have known bits and pieces of this story but never this much. Your blog is always the most interesting and best researched part of the entire website. Seriously.

  • James, Thanks for the Belmont blog. My great-grandfather fought with Grant at the battle in 1861, was injured, medically discharged, went home, healed up, then re-enlisted again at Camp Cairo, served through the rest of the War down the river, and mustered out in 1865 at New Orleans. The ride out MO-80 will be on the agenda on my next trip down home. Maps and all are also greatly appreciated, SEMO history matters to us raincrows and pioneer families, thanks again(that didn't take long!!)Regards, kkr
