9781499379594: Bushwhackers of Missouri: and General Order 11

Most ‘bushwhackers’ wore felt hats, pinned up on one side by a crescent or star shaped pin, perhaps a feather or squirrel tail attached. The shirt was generally a hunting shirt of the period with a very large breast pocket that could carry two or three loaded cylinders for his pistol. Trouser legs tucked into knee-high boots with Mexican spurs and about his middle, two holstered .36 caliber Navy Colts and two more inserted in the waistband of his trousers. The American Civil War, one of the most violent wars ever contested, started in reality in 1850, when the Compromise of 1850 deposed the Missouri Compromise of 1820 and made “Popular Vote,” the way by which the decision would be made, to designate a state FREE or SLAVE. Kansas became the test, northerners and southerner both pouring into the territory, voting to make that new state what either side preferred. Soon, bands of armed men rode through Kansas and Missouri, some from the anti-slavery north, the ‘Red Legs’ and ‘Jayhawkers.’ Other bands, representing the pro-slavery point of view rode in from Missouri. These “border ruffians,” soon became known as ‘bushwhackers,’ like the ‘red legs,’ killed and burned out people with an opposite point of view.

About the Author:

Avid history buff and journalist, Meredith Anderson was born in Osceola, Missouri. A graduate of Weber State University, he was President of the state wide organization, League of Utah Writers in 2007. For much of his adult life he has written articles for magazines and newspapers to entertain the outdoor enthusiast. His core subjects include, history, hunting, fishing, camping, and cooking. He was asked several times while signing books at Missouri area book events why he didn’t write about General Order 11. This is the result. To his credit, one of his two fantasy novels has been nominated twice for motion picture production. His novel about a young sailor during the Vietnam war, MORE THAN A JOB, AN ADVENTURE has won the coveted Gold Quill Award for Literature. Being a Vietnam Veteran gave him the experience. His book Civil War Women of Courage is used as recommended reading by the history department of a local University.
