USA commanders in Missouri
- Reading Brownlee's 'Gray Ghosts of the Confederacy' I'm impressed at
the number of Union generals that worked in Missouri.
The lamented Lyon, Grant, Halleck, the despised Pope, Sherman,
Schofield and Sheridan all gained valuable experience in the state.
Schofield served 2 stints as commander of the district, before moving
east (of here).
