Thank you! We tend to focus on Van Dorn and forget the Union Army.
Curtis is one of the unsung heros of the war and should be
remembered. He just kept his head and handled his force very well.
Sigel had one of his few "good days" here. Osterhaus, Asboth, Davis
and Carr all did an excellent job in trying times.
I think at some point they must have realized that Van Dorn
was "had" and all they had to do was hang on.
