An Experiment in Counterinsurgency: The Assessment of Confederate Sympathizers in Missouri
Not available online
TitleAn Experiment in Counterinsurgency: The Assessment of Confederate Sympathizers in Missouri
AbstractArticle about the attempts by the Union military to battle guerrilla warfare and other Confederate sympathizing activities in Civil War Missouri through tax assessments on "disloyal citizens." Various aspects through the war of these programs are discussed in various parts of the state, along with mention of many prominent politicians and military officers and Bushwhackers involved.
NotesPage 380: "The taxes [assessments] failed to check the guerrillas or control the secessionists. Instead of establishing order, the assessments contributed to bitterness and social disorder. As an experiment in counterinsurgency, the assessment policy in Missouri proved a distinct failure."
