Some observations made while browsing through thousands of Provost Marshal records and Official Union and Confederate Records and Military Dispatches.

1. Most Federal Officers refused to recognize the Confederate States of America. They called it "the so-called Southern Confederacy".  Instead of "The Confederate Army", they usually called it "Price's Army".
2. Most foreign Federal  Officers did not use the term "Bushwhacker" in their reports. They said "Brushwhacker". The Missourians on both sides used "Bushwhacker"
3. Robbing, killing, and horse stealing, was called"Jayhawking" in the border counties by the military, regardless of which side did it. The charge against many arrested Southern Partisans was "Jayhawking". To Missouri civilians, jayhawking referred to the actions of Kansans only.
4. There were hundreds of Guerrilla leaders with groups of 10 to 100 men, scattered all over the state.
5. Southern Recruiters went to the Northeastern cities and secretly recruited men for the Confederate Army.
6. Nearly all of the female Guerrillas that were imprisoned were 4'8 to 5' tall, had light hair and blue or hazel eyes. Seems odd.
7. Guerrilla Bands were active in most Southern states, and also in Nebraska, Illinois, Indiana and some other Northern states.
8. It seems to have been illegal to sell liquor to Federal soldiers anywhere in the U.S.
9. Many people went to prison when the only charge against them was "Hurrahing for Jeff Davis".
10. To  most rural Missourians, Bill Anderson was more of a hero, than was Quantrill.
11. One of the major objectives of the Union Military Commanders in Missouri seems to have been to steal as much land as possible from the Southern farmers.


Thanks to Missouri's Sec. of State's office for putting the Provost Marshal Records on line for the public to use. 

Missouri has also put Missouri Military records, Death Certificates, and many other records on line.

Too bad other states haven't followed suit. 

Too many officials in other states regard public records as only a source of income.
