Re: Phillips Expedition - Feb 1864

You stated "Col. John Jumper's company and a detachment of the Col. Thomas Coke Bass' 20th Texas Cavalry was stationed at Camp Kansas".

Do you mind sharing with us the source of this information?
What is Col John Jumper's company? Do you mean the Seminole Battalion?

"Was it given the name Camp Kansas for no other reason than because it was on the Texas Road to Fort Scott Kansas?"

Again, what is the source of the name "Camp Kansas"? I assumed Phillips was referring to his own camp on the battlefield the night of the battle, calling it "Camp Kansas" because he and Willett's Battalion were Kansans.
