As suggested by the title, this book covers the history of America's Civil War on the southern portion of the Kansas-Missouri border. It excludes several notable episodes of the war on the border, such as Quantrill's raid on Lawrence, that fall outside its narrow geographic limits and that have been covered in detail by previous authors. It concentrates instead on lesser-known events such as Senator Jim Lane's raid on Osceola, Missouri, the sacking of Humboldt, Kansas, and Quantrill's battle and massacre at Baxter Springs. It also chronicles the lives of colorful men like Confederate guerrilla Tom Livingston who operated along the lower Kansas-Missouri border but who previously have received little attention.

"A thorough and interesting account that is strictly regional but nevertheless gives us a view that makes the big picture clearer." Dr. Fred Pfister, Editor, The Ozarks Mountaineer
