Missouri Historical Review, Vol. 7 free pdf Excerpt from Missouri Historical Review, Vol. 7: October, 1912 July, 1913 Mrs. McCausland's graphic account of the battle of Lexington, in the April number of the Review, revives many memories of those stirring times in Missouri history of half a century ago. A native of Illinois, I became a resident of Bolivar, Polk county, Missouri, in 1853. And though consecrated to the peaceful arts of Galen and Esculapius by the McDowell Medical College, of St. Louis, I arose in 1856 to the military rank of a Missouri colonel. This honor was thrust upon me by Governor Bob Stewart, who commissioned me Military Inspector of the Sixth Militia district, which comprised about all that part of the state south of the Osage and west of the Gasconade rivers. In anticipation of the portending conflict, that then seemed inevitable, the work assigned to the Military Inspectors was to organize the state militia and put it on the semblance of a war basis. The active exercise of that duty was prolific of some exciting experiences in the memorable border troubles of that era. Naturally, the southern heart of Southwest Missouri was fired by the Camp Jackson massacre, in May, 1861 and in June, with a few comrades, I joined General Price, on the Blackwater, as he fell back from the Missouri river. With the patriots, led by General Rains, I marched up Bloody Hill at the battle of Wilson Creek, August 10th, and was not far behind the first who found the dead body of General Lyon.
