      Hi Y'all
      Depends on where you are to the most part the folks east of the
      Mississippi think the War in the west was a sideshow.
      The folks in the West thought the world east of the Mississippi
      forgot them and so they forgot the east.
      To a point the Trans-Mississippi and the Department of Missouri was
      a focal point for small battles as the numbers of folks involved go
      but there is the tacticl question to look at as well.
      (1) the loss of Missouri closed the invasion of the Northern states
      like Illnois and Wisconsin and Minnisota. freeing troops for service
      in the east. Where would Custer be without the "Wolverines" or think
      of no Iron Brigade.
      (2) The west lost is food, horses, manpower and the far west.
      (3) Missouri is frought with the true intercine war.
      (4) Kansas and Iowa and Nebraska have a clear path with Missouri in
      Union hands but would have been cut off if lost to the Confederates.
      so the so called great war of the east is a perspective, and well
      earned but us Trans-Mississippi fans (I'm from Arkansas) are proud
      of our war too.
      Thanks all
      Yous in service
      James
