Skunk River War
Danny, I think you did a bang up job describing the incident concerning both sides of the "Skunk River War". It is well written. Thank you and sorry I missed you in Iowa. Ken

I realize this is not what you were asking for, but here is a soldier that served both sides. He was a Uncle of Reverand George Cypert Talley.

RE: George Talley

Danny,
I live in Anchorage, Alaska and am on a two month driving vacation.
Right now am
in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Two weeks ago after leaving the 150th anniversary of
Gettysburg I was in Keokuk and Wapello Co visiting my Talley, Young,and Reno
relatives.

If you look up George in Find A Grave and click on "Skunk River War" I
have input
all of the newspaper clippings I could find relating to that episode.

Most of my relatives that were in the Civil War fought for the North and
others for
the South. One relative from Arkansas fought as a Reb, then changed his
mind and
fought for the Yanks.
