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. Attractive soft cover, 216 pages includes index, 6 x 9
format, in easy to read typeface.
