Joe Porter's War

By Scott Salle- Scott Salle has captured crucial details in his excellent research of Confederate Colonel Joseph Porter. In his work he used Dr. Mudd’s notes as a base and expanding on those, he carried the work on with much more indepth additions. The essence of Porters personality is explored when the war was gathering momentum in North Missouri as he struggled to keep his small command together. Impossible in Missouri, he attempted to fight a kind of war in which honor counted. His opponents had other very different ideas. Stubbornly and bravely, Porter carried on, outnumbered many times and out gunned, all the time, Porter fought for his cause. Many photographs, maps, large appendix section.
