I wrote this yesterday but I did not get it published. I am sorry about that.
But Col. Sigel and Gov. Jackson, still led,
Their soldiers who fought so bold,
But the Missouri State Guard was to much to behold.
By Gov. Jackson this battle was won,
But the Civil War was long from done.
For years many hearts would be pierced by the stain of blood,
Many would think of their loved ones, fighting, with clarity as thick as mud.
But the year was only 1861,
And it seemed every boy and man held a gun.

Here is a video of pictures from a reenactment some people did years ago.
