Lumir Burish, October 25th and the Battle of Mine Creek, signed
A Dramatic Cavalry Charge & Decisive Victory on the Kansas Prairie!
Lumir Burish tells the story of Mine Creek, with some help from editor, Dan Smith.
This little-known engagement on the western frontier put a decisive end to the war in the Missouri and Kansas.
A well-researched and well-written account of the only battle between regularly organized Union and Confederate troops in the state of Kansas, where pursuing federal cavalry destroyed the rear guard of General Sterling Price’s army as they fled Missouri following defeat at Westport.
A fascinating story filled with dramatic cavalry action, a victory against long odds, and small actions with far-ranging consequences. Excellent, in dust jacket; inscribed and signed by author Lumir Burish.
