By Wiley Britton, Late Sixth Kansas Cavalry. He author chronicled the events, during the year 1863, thereby providing the first-hand account of the rebellion, described here, his personal observations


and impressions, a panoramic view of military operations. This volume appears a unique source of information about the events on the borders of Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas and the Indian Territory during 1863. Britton says: I noted not only the movements of the army with which I was connected, and the battles and minor engagements which it fought, but I also turned aside now and then to note a good many other things; as, for instance, the thoughts and feelings of the soldiers on various subjects, as reflected in their conversations around their camp fires and on the march. I have also given short descriptions of the country we marched over and around our camps; the pro and con opinions of officers and soldiers in regard to the policy of the Government, in emancipating the slaves and of enlisting the freedmen into the army.
