The Battle of Blackwell

By John Hampton Hollingsworth The Battle of Blackwell tells of a little known action concerning a portion of the Iron Mountain Railroad and General Jeff “the Swamp Fox” Thompson. Interesting, excellent photographs denoting locations etc. when Thompson and his men dedicated their efforts to destroying the great bridge at Blackwell, Missouri; not quite finished yet, Thompson follow the railroad tracks and gobbles up a Union detachment that got in his way. Wonderfully well written little booklet.  It also contains additional epilogue, bibliographical section and end-notes. Soft-cover.
