Not available online
Title''Look Out For Hell Some Place Soon'' The 2nd Colorado Cavalry in Missouri, February-September, 1864
AbstractFrom February to September of 1864, the 2nd Colorado Cavalry was assigned to patrol Bates, Cass, and Jackson Counties, Missouri, areas ravaged by Order Number 11. This article examines the reasons for the unit's success and gives numerous examples of contact made with guerrilla fighters in the area. Some reasons given for success include: soldiers had no long term animosity for Missouri residents, the men had time to learn the countryside, a wide range of military tactics were used, and the Colorado soldiers were capable fighters.
