often considered the only battle in which the Confederacy destroyed
an army (Bull Nelson's army). The best source for this battle is the
book Where The Ripe Pears Fell by Dr. Lambert. Only about 2500 of
these books were printed and there is no possibility of more being
produced. You can find the book at several places like ABE Books, or
Amazon.com, but many are asking well over a hundred dollars for the
book. I bought mine for thirty bucks. There is a driving tour and
the driving tour maps can be obtained by the Chamber of Commerce.
