Would you gentlemen be so kind as to point me towards definitive resources regarding the 3rd Regiment, Missouri Volunteers, Confederate States Army and/or Company A, 1st Cavalry, 4th Division, Missouri State Guard. I am specifically interested in where they served before moving east of the Mississippi River. Athens? Oak Hills? Lexington? Elk Horn Tavern?
I read The South's Finest, by Phillip T. Tucker. I reckon it ought to be required reading for everyone interested in the late great unpleasantness. I've also read a number of other good books, but I'm betting you boys can point me towards more detailed documentation.
I'd specifically like to know about, composition, disposition, and courses of action for Gen. Price's Army during each fight.
As you might have already guessed, I'm looking for tracks of my grandpa's grandpa's brother and where he might've ended up.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. As always.
