Hi Everyone, I actually have 2 questions for you. The first one is, I live a few miles away from Lone Jack, MO. There was a battle there but I keep getting different stories. I've been there a few times and looked around and went through the museum, but I was wondering if anyone knew of any credable internet sources for info on the battle.
My other question is that "Gettysburg" and "Gods and Generals" were to be the first two of a 3 movie set with "Gods and Generals" as the first one. Does anyone have any idea when the third movie is going to be out? I'm dying to see it. I loved the first two.
Thanks to everyone in advance and I'm looking forward to hearing back from you.
The Battle of Lone Jack is said to be one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War in Missouri.
The third part of the trilogy you refer to is "Last Full Measure." We had a discussion about this recently here because someone is making a movie with that same name, but it doesn't appear to be about the Civil War at all. Ron Maxwell is the person who made the first two parts. His web site does not show any further efforts towards making "Last Full Measure" but it does ask that we check in to see the latest news (of which there is none.)

Richards welcome , We all started somewhere. I knew only the basics four years ago when as i tell people on a trip cross country I saw a sign that said Pea Ridge. I was hooked.
Your library will grow and with that your knowledge. There are many here who will educate you . They are very willing to share. They will point you to the right books.
Check out some of Johan Steele's post . He post list of books worth reading and owning Many as he says are from his library. Well worth reviewing .
Look around where you are and see if there is a round table. I have learned so much from the one I joined. Go to reenactments and asked questions . The people there are usually so friendly and helpful.
Hello from on Missourian to another. I'm a reenactor from Missouri in Blue Springs if your familar with Jackson County at all as for Lone Jack. It really depends which resources you go threw. I really wouldn't trust wikipedia too much but it does have some reliable information.
But my expertise is in Missouri Civil War/ Border War battles... So if you need anymore info drop me message and I'll talk to ya about it...
Plus your in Warrensburg, MO correct.. You know that one of the best feild commanders in missouri was from there? Francis Cockrell... And the Missouri Brigade.
