“Price's Lost Campaign:
The 1864 Invasion of Missouri
(Shades of Blue & Gray)"
by Dr. Mark A. Lause.
Dr. Mark A. Lause, is Professor of History at the University of Cincinnati and is the author of numerous other books.

Lause’s account of the Missouri Campaign of 1864 brings new understanding of the two distinct phases of the campaign, as based upon declared strategic goals. Additionally, as the author reveals the clear connection between the military campaign and the outcome of the election, he successfully tests the efforts of new military historians to integrate political, economic, social, and cultural history into the study of warfare. In showing how both sides during Sterling’s Raid used self-serving fictions to provide a rationale for their politically motivated brutality and were unwilling to risk defeat, Lause reveals the underlying nature of the American Civil War as a modern war.

Civil War Trivia


Arthur MacArthur, who in 1899 rather belatedly received a Medal of Honor for leading his regiment at Missionary Ridge in 1863, was the father of Douglas MacArthur, who received his during World War II, making them the only father and son to have ever received this decoration.
