—from the Introduction
...The documents represent military bureaucracy and soldierly concerns. Amidst the minutia are reports on cavalry weapons, skirmishing at the California House, scouts to Spring Creek, Big Piney and Texas County, and the doings of the Tilleys. Only two reports from these records appear in The War of the Rebellion: the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies. The other documents from Post Waynesville are available here for the first time.

- from the Introduction

...A popular fascination with caves flourished in the Ozarks in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, when residents and visitors alike shared in the preoccupation with natural openings in the earth. It led them for many reasons to gather at caves, take up torches and explore the sometimes wet and muddy confines of what might otherwise be just holes in the ground...

John Bradbury explores this fascination and the uses of caves in our area of "The Cave State" in this 40 page booklet (5.5 by 8.5 inches).

John Bradbury is Senior Fellow of the State Historical
Society of Missouri Research Center-Rolla. He has
written on the Civil War and the Ozarks for the Missouri
Historical Review
, Arkansas Historical Quarterly, Old
Settlers Gazette
, and Newsletter of the Phelps County Historical
. Gourd Creek, on the cover opposite, was the first cave he visited.
