In 1864, Union troops controlled much of the South, Sherman's men marched with impunity through Georgia and defeat at Gettysburg was a painful and distant memory. The Confederacy needed to stem the tide. Confederate major general Sterling Price led an army of twelve thousand troops on a desperate charge through Missouri to deliver the state to the Confederacy and dash President Lincoln's hopes for reelection. This daring campaign culminated with the Battle of Mine Creek. A severly outnumbered Union army crushed the Confederate forces in one of the war's largest and most audacious cavalry charges. Historian Jeff Stalnaker puts the reader in the saddle with the Union toppers as they destroy all hop for Rebel victory in the Trans-Mississippi.
