B.F. Gumm’s Company


A 6 Oct 65 letter from Chas. W. Blair, Late Brevet BG states: “…I was in command of this Sub. District, and they were called out by my order, at a time when a large rebel force was in the border of Missouri under Shelby and just after the attack on Gen. Blunt, at Baxter Springs, that I had started with the most of the armed and available Federal troops that were on duty in the locality, to relieve Gen. Blunt, and that I ordered out this militia believing it necessary to the defence of the State.”


Joined 5 Oct 63 in Marion TWP. Active service 7-19 Oct 63.
