Guerilla George Todd at Little Blue

In the early postings on Missouri guerillas, it was noted that guerillas fought alongside regulars in some 1862 actions.

George Todd and some of his men fought with Shelby at Little Blue on Oct. 21, 1864 during Price's Missour Invasion. According to a Union officer named George S. Grover who was there, Todd was shot and killed near the town square in Independence by retreating Federals as they fell back through the town from the Little Blue River.
