"Major General Sterling Price returned to St. Louis broken in health and died in 1867 at the age of fifty-nine years. His chief of staff, Colonel Thomas L. Snead, came back also to St. Louis, but finally made his home in New York. He was a lawyer by profession, and was a gallant and faithful officer, who understood the duties of his position land was a great acquisition to the army. He had all the qualities and polished manners of a gentleman. He was most companionable and had a large fund of both knowledge and anecdote at his disposal to draw on, when occasion required it, to enliven his comrades and turn many a moment that otherwise would have been gloomy into one of pleasure. He wrote a book which he called "The Fight for Missouri," a most impartial relation of facts connected with the stirring events of that time. To the future historian this work will be a valuable one, written as it is without prejudice. He died suddenly in New York and his remains were brought to St. Louis and interred in Bellefontaine."
