Confederates at Marmiton River, Misouri, 25 October 1864
- My friends,
At the end of Price's 1864 Missouri Raid there were two small
engagements at Marmiton River (10/25/64) and Newtonia (10/28/64).
It is my understanding that after Mine Creek, Shelby took command of
the rearguard. He mentions in his report the engagement at Newtonia
but doesn't say anything regarding the Marmiton River clash.
Can anybody confir his presence at Marmiton River?
Thanks in advance for any help in clarifying this little issue.
