Description

Civil War "Small Wars" Big Impact -Trans-Mississippi Theater

If the Civil War had a "forgotten theater," it was the Trans-Mississippi West. Starting in 1861 with the Lincoln administration's desire to maintain control of the far west, The Civil War in the Trans-Mississippi Theater, 1861–1865, covers battles in New Mexico, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas, including Pea Ridge in March 1862 and Pleasant Hill in April 1864. The Red River Expedition and Price's Raid are also covered. The narrative places these campaigns and battles in their strategic context to show how they contributed to the outcome of the war. The Trans-Mississippi West played an important role in the Civil War. Although the battles fought in this region were relatively small compared with those fought elsewhere, the struggle to control the Trans-Mississippi had far-reaching consequences for both sides.
