    • General Sterling Price's Raid through Missouri


      from mosecofstate / Added

      Author Walter E. Busch leads a discussion exploring Confederate Gen. Sterling Price’s raid through Missouri on Thursday, September 11, 2014, at 7 p.m., where he argued Price’s raid was more effective than most historians acknowledge. The Battle of Fort Davidson, also known as the Battle of Pilot Knob, was the opening engagement of Price's Missouri Raid during the Civil War. On the morning of September 27, 1864, a force led by Price attacked the installation, just outside of Pilot Knob in Iron County. Although outnumbered by more than 10-to-1, the Union defenders held off repeated Confederate assaults and slipped away during the night. Walter E. Busch, natural resources manager for the Fort Davidson State Historic Site and a prolific author on Price and the Battle of Pilot Knob, will lead the audience through this and other intriguing events associated with the general’s historic raid through Missouri. The Missouri State Archives is the official repository for state documents of permanent historic value, and is located at 600 West Main St. in Jefferson City.

              Presented by the Weider History Group and American Military University The fact that the first major battle of the Western Theater did not take place until spring 1862 indicates the difficulty both sides had in mobilizing their armies in the much larger and more rugged West. But could a decisive victory at Shiloh have changed the outcome of the war? Watch American Military University and the Weider History Group's recorded webcast event that highlighted the importance of the Battle of Shiloh and the effect it had on the outcome of the Civil War. Our speakers discussed what would have happened in case of a decisive Confederate victory at Shiloh. Such an event would have removed Grant and Sherman, the Union's two ablest commanders, and would have opened the way to probable further Confederate victories that might have changed the outcome of the war.

                Presented by the Weider History Group and American Military University While the names and stories of many Civil War heroes often come to mind, have you ever wondered about the common soldier of the Civil War? Civil War aficionados readily recall the names of Grant, Lee, Sherman, and Stonewall. However, there is a renewed and growing interest in the common soldier of the Civil War, “Johnny Reb” and “Billy Yank”. From battling in muddy trenches to charging through fields of enemy fire, the common soldier also combated the equally-deadly diseases that plagued the theater of war. But what motivated him to fight? Watch American Military University and the Weider History Group's recorded webcast event that brought light to what it must have been like for these men to “see the elephant” and, more importantly, how they spent their time both on active campaigning and winter camp.
