George Crook, the commander of the 36th Ohio Volunteer Infantry that was stationed in West Virginia on counterguerrilla duty during the fall and winter ofrecollected that "when an officer returned from a scout he would report that they had caught so-and-so, but in bring- ing him in he slipped off a log while crossing a stream and broke his neck, or that he was killed by an accidental discharge of one of the men's guns, and many like reports. But they never brought back any more prisoners.
Congress came to the aid of frustrated officers in 1 by passing an act that permitted depart- ment commanders to execute guerrillas convicted by military commis- sions, without referring the cases to Washington. By that time, howev- er, the issue was almost moot, for no-quarter policies were already widely in force. Recognizing that Linger (LP Version) - The Cranberries - Linger mild and indulgent course heretofore pursued" had failed to deter the secessionists, General Halleck in the winter of called for the adoption of a more severe policy designed to make secessionist civilians "begin to feel the presence of the war.
Initially, the government required only office holders and former Confederate soldiers to take the oath, but over time it extended the Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less to nearly everyone living in the southern and border states. The Army usually demanded that people taking the oath put up a bond guaranteeing their good Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less. Violation of the oath resulted in for- feiture plus other unpleasant consequences, ranging from confisca- tion to exile, imprisonment, and even death.
Such individuals lost the right to participate in local politics and bore the brunt Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less special levies imposed by the government. Even so, many resisted taking the oath, prompting some officers to devise special incentives. I Dont Care (If Tomorrow Never Comes) - Hank Williams, Jr.* - The Pressure Is On Tennessee, for example, Maj.
Rosecrans threatened to ship anyone who refused to take the oath beyond government lines. When the threat failed to make any converts, he arrested leading secessionist citizens. Although many indi- 30 The War of the Rebellion, viduals took the oath purely out of expediency, the stiff punishments inflicted for violations probably acted as somewhat of a deterrent. Federal forces first resorted to such measures during the summer of in western Virginia and Missouri.
John Pope, a Mexican War veteran, announced a policy of fining Missouri towns within a five-mile radius of any guer- rilla attack, unless the inhabitants could prove that they had attempt- ed to prevent the deed. He employed a similar policy a Easy To Be Hard - Three Dog Night - That Aint The Way To Have Fun: Greatest Hits later in the East, as commander of the Army of Virginia.
Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less Wool, commander B.O.P. Feat. Club Artists United - I Believe I Can Fly (Remix) the Department of Virginia, reinforced Pope's action.
During the Mexican War, Wool had adopted a policy of hold- ing communities responsible for the damages done by guerrillas. Now, fifteen years later, he reinstated those same policies, proclaim- ing in July that he would hold civilians accountable not just for guerrilla actions, but also for failing to notify the Army of the pres- ence of guerrillas. Other commanders followed suit, and the imposi- tion of fines and assessments quickly became a common feature of the war.
Individuals suspected of aiding the insurgents were tried by military commissions and, if convicted, sentenced to imprisonment or with Lincoln's rare approval death. Many were not charged but were held for various lengths of time and then released. Union officers also arrested individuals for use as hostages, holding them until such time as the community paid a fine or helped apprehend local irregulars.
Hostages and other detainees could also expect to be banished, as the Army forced thousands of civilians to leave their homes for a variety of reasons. Sometimes the rationale was to punish especially recalcitrant citizens, like five women who walked out of a Vicksburg church when the minister read a prayer for Lincoln.
More often, civilians were banished in retaliation for guerrilla attacks, as was the case Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less the fall of when Maj. William T Sherman exiled ten secessionist families for every boat on the Mississippi River that came under rebel fire.
Schofield, who spent a good deal of his Civil War career fighting guerrillas and their pro- secessionist allies in Missouri, was typical.
While he took a hard line toward active secessionists by imposing fines, confiscating property, and denying quarter to bushwhackers, he ordered his sub- ordinates to treat the population with respect on the grounds that "many may be reclaimed by jus- tice mingled with kindness.
The rangers represented an attempt by rebel authorities to legitimize and gain greater control over their guerrilla warriors by formally making them a part of the Confederate Army. The creation of this new class of irregular forced the federal government to reassess its own policy. What troubled Commanding General Halleck was not the concept of formal partisan troops, which had long been accepted in European and American mili- tary circles, but whether the rebels could extend the cloak of legitima- cy to the many less formally organized bushwhacker and guerrilla bands that operated in civilian dress.
In August he asked Dr. Francis Lieber, a noted legal scholar, for his views on the subject. Lieber responded by writing Guerrilla Parties. In his pamphlet, Lieber attempted to dispel the Kiss To Kiss - Cher - Heart Of Stone over the treatment of rebel irregulars by dividing them into several categories: 32 The War of the Rebellion, the partisan, the guerrilla, the "war-rebel," and the armed prowler or bushwhacker.
He essentially agreed with Confederate authorities that Partisan Rangers were legitimate combatants, as long as they were regularly enrolled, paid, officered, uniformed, and subordinated to proper authority. Such partisans, he maintained, were fully entitled to the protection of the laws of war, as long as they themselves did not violate them. He defined them as self-constituted groups, not formally tied to the organization and administration of an army, which carried on a "petty war Nevertheless, he recommended in the interest of humanity that the government treat cap- tured guerrillas as regular prisoners of war unless specific crimes could be proved against them.
War-rebel was a label Lieber assigned to civilians in occupied areas who took up arms against an occupying power, while the armed prowler or bushwhacker was merely an indi- vidual who took it upon Pacific FM - Francesco Tristano - Surface Tension to shoot down sentinels.
By wearing civilian dress and taking shelter amongst the population, war-rebels and bushwhackers undermined the distinction between combatant and non- combatant that was the foundation upon which the laws of war rested, and consequently, Lieber believed the Army should treat them as brig- ands.
Civilians who provided information and assistance to the irregu- lars were equally subject to harsh treatment. Essentially, Lieber advo- cated treating irregulars according to their deeds. Those who abided by the rules of war deserved humane treatment, while those who did not were to be treated severely, regardless of whether they were regular sol- diers, partisans, guerrillas, or civilians.
Halleck was so pleased with Lieber's approach that he ordered 5, copies of the pamphlet distributed throughout the Army. Encouraged by the response, Lieber suggested that the govern- ment publish a more formal code governing the conduct of federal forces in the field.
Recognizing the merit of the proposal, Halleck com- missioned a panel consisting of Lieber, Maj. Like those laws, GO attempted to ameliorate the harshness of war by striking a bal- ance between humanitarian impulses and brutal necessity.
Lieber reminded American soldiers that "men who take up arms against one another in public war do not cease on this account to be moral beings, responsible to one another and to God. Moderation was especially needed in occupation duty, and the order admonished soldiers to respect the personal and property rights of unarmed citizens, as well as their religious and social customs. The order strictly forbade all forms of wanton destruction, looting, Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less pillaging, as well as acts of cruelty, torture, or revenge.
Although General Orders recognized that mil- itary necessity sometimes required stern measures, including the destruction of property, Lieber reminded officers that "unjust or incon- siderate retaliation removes the belligerents farther and farther from the mitigating rules of regular war, and by rapid steps leads them nearer to the internecine wars of savages.
Like his predecessors in the realm of international law, Lieber considered the relationship between soldier and civilian to be reciprocal in nature. Should the civilian population spurn the hand of reconciliation by taking up arms and supporting guerrillas, then military necessity required that the Army adopt stern measures.
As in Lieber's earlier pamphlet, General Orders main- tained that partisans were legitimate combatants only when they wore uniforms and were an integral part of a larger army. Irregulars who masked their true nature by assuming "the semblance of peaceful pur- suits, divesting themselves of the character or appearance of sol- diers," were engaging in private, rather than public, war and were to be treated summarily as pirates, rather than as legitimate combatants.
Among the punishments the orders prescribed for disloyal civilians during an insurrection Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less expulsion, relocation, imprisonment, fines, and confiscation. Prior works on the laws of war, including those studied at the academy, had been of a theoretical and scholarly nature that lacked the compulsion of state policy.
What Lieber had done was to assemble into a concise and practical guide the loose collection of theory and precedent that made up the laws of war. The code had a profound impact on the development of military policy and legal theory both at home and abroad. GO caused a sen- sation in Europe, as Prussia, France, and Great Britain all used it as a model to develop similar I: Allegro Maestoso - Anne-Sophie Mutter, Mozart*, Bruno Giuranna, Academy Of St.
Martin In The Fiel for their own armies. Moreover, the code became one of the pillars upon which the first formal internation- al agreements on the laws of war, the Hague Conventions of andwere based. General Orders was equally revered at home.
In the U. Military Academy made a systematic study of the code mandatory Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less cadets, and it remained an integral part of the U. Even then, the code lived on, as both the new man- ual and its successor, Field ManualRules Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less Land Warfare, pub- lished inincorporated many of its ideas. GO thus enshrined in American military policy a practical blend of moderation and strin- gency that would characterize the Army's approach to military govern- ment, counterguerrilla, and pacification operations for the next one hundred years.
Yet for all of its influence upon future generations of Army leaders, Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less Orders had surprisingly little impact on the conduct of the Civil War itself. One reason was that it was issued only as guidance, since the War Department believed that local commanders were best equipped to decide the proper boundary between leniency and severity.
More important was the fact that Lieber's code was based upon the same concepts that federal commanders had used to govern their actions from the beginning of the war. The orders heightened awareness of these principles and provided a useful guide for applying them but did not essentially change them. What GO really did was to sanc- tion virtually everything federal commanders had done prior to its pub- lication.
Lieber's guerrilla pamphlet and the general orders codified what Halleck and most of his officers already believed to be the prop- er policies. The imposition of fines and assessments on the disloyal; the imprisonment and possible execution of civilians who aided the enemy; the denial of quarter to guerrillas who themselves took Watusi Strut - Various - Spirit Of The Street Vol 1 (11 Urban Jazz Flavours) prisoners or who disguised themselves as civilians; and the dispensing of summary justice for certain violations of the laws of war — all were sanctioned by GO The degree to which any or all of these measures were imposed was left to the discretion of individual commanders.
Many guerrillas were exchanged, especially if they were caught wearing uniforms or were not known to have committed any particularly heinous act. However, the War Department attached so many caveats to this policy that it was never consistently carried out. For one thing, guerrillas taken in border states could only be released with the approval of the governor, a clear recognition of the fact that guerrilla warfare was as much political in its effects as it was military.
For another, commanders were allowed to try captured guer- rillas whom they believed had committed crimes, and some comman- ders put virtually all guerrilla prisoners on trial. Even when guerrilla prisoners were not charged with any specific offense, the Army reserved the right to withhold them from routine exchanges.
Finally, the War Department continued to permit commanders to refuse quarter to guerrillas who had violated the rules of war. Halleck's successor as Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less general of the Army, Lt.
Grant, himself ordered Maj. Sheridan to "hang without trial" members of Col. John S. Mosby's battalion of Virginia Partisan Rangers, who routinely donned civilian garb to escape capture. The effect of all these qualifications was that guerrillas received treatment as prisoners of war only when and where local commanders deemed such a policy advisable. As the war progressed, fewer and fewer commanders chose to grant such favors.
No-quarter policies, either official or unofficial, became increasingly common. So too did mass arrests, banishments, and the confiscation and destruction of property, as the Army turned increasingly to heavy-handed tactics in dealing with the recalcitrant population. Indeed, the last two years of the war, from the publication of General Orders in April to Lee's surrender at Appomattox Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less Aprilwitnessed growing sever- ity on the part of federal forces.
Sherman realized that the Army was "not only fighting hos- tile armies, but a hostile people, and must make old and young, rich and poor, feel the hard hand of war.
So too did General Grant, who "under- stood that he was engaged in a people's war and that the people as well as the armies of the South must be conquered, before the war could end. Although the Army experimented with population removal early Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less the war, the first major removal scheme surfaced in the fall ofwhen Halleck authorized Grant to confiscate property and deport all active secessionists living in western Tennessee and northern Mississippi.
A year later Brig. Thomas Ewing, Jr. Halleck eventually rescinded the order, on the grounds that it harmed the loyal as well as the disloyal. Nevertheless, over the next two years the Army occasionally used a combination of mass arrests and banishments to attack the informal network of active civilian sympathizers upon which the guerrillas relied for food, shelter, and information. One of the more notable efforts occurred in Virginia inwhen General Grant ordered the arrest of the Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less of known guerrillas as well as "all able-bodied male citi- zens under the age of fifty.
When this did not succeed in rooting out the guerrillas, Grant contemplated removing the entire population of northern Virginia living east of the Blue Ridge Mountains, due to "the necessity of cleaning out that country so that it will not support Mosby's gang" of partisans. Initially it destroyed only well-defined targets, such as the houses of known guerrillas or buildings from which sniper fire emanated.
However, as the war progressed, some officers began to press for a Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less liberal use of the torch. Colonel Crook, whose regiment was assigned to counter- guerrilla duty in western Virginia in the winter and spring ofwas one of the first to do so. Crook found the situation in Webster County to be "so bad that we had to burn out the entire county to prevent the people from harboring" the guerrillas. Other com- manders followed suit.
Beginning inthe Army and the Navy adopted the policy of destroying towns and farms as retaliation for guerrilla attacks on shipping along the Mississippi River. The Army implemented a similar policy to protect vital railroads. By 1 a grow- ing consensus existed within the Army that the way to eliminate the guerrillas was, in the words of Col. Penick, "to destroy all sub- sistence [in] the country and send off their wives and children.
Edward A. Wild, a Harvard-educated physician dubbed the Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less of Beelzebub" by the inhabitants, destroyed houses, barns, and livestock, took hostages, and hanged cap- tured guerrillas in an effort to pacify the state. In Missouri a combina- tion of banishments and incendiarism left wide areas of the state desert- ed and desolate, Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less in Arkansas Maj.
Frederick Steele ordered his troops to make areas infested with guerrillas "uninhabitable. David Hunter and George Crook burned out sections of the Kanawha Valley, destroying crops, livestock, and buildings. Generals Grant and Sheridan took a similar view in neighboring Virginia.
Unable to secure the rich and strategically important Shenandoah Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less from the com- 38 The War of the Rebellion, bined threat of rebel main forces, partisans, and bushwhackers, Grant ordered Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less to destroy all the crops and seize all the livestock in the valley. Sheridan put the valley to the torch, sparing only houses for humanitarian reasons, although his troopers sometimes burned even these in retaliation for guerrilla attacks.
Having laid waste to the Shenandoah, Sheridan turned his attention to neighboring Loudoun County, the base area of the highly successful rebel partisan, Colonel Mosby. In late November Sheridan struck at the civilian infrastructure that supported Mosby, destroying or con- fiscating all forage, livestock, barns, and mills in the county. Though the guerrillas continued to operate, they did so with increasing diffi- culty and with dwindling support from the war-ravaged inhabitants. As commander of the Department of the Tennessee in Januaryhe authorized his soldiers to confiscate the livestock of all but proven Unionists to "punish the country well for permitting the guerrillas among them.
Although he attempted to respect Southerners' personal and property rights, he did not hesitate to strike even these when guerrillas were afoot. Thus he directed that in districts and neighborhoods where the army is unmolested, no destruction of [private] property should be permitted; but should guerrillas or bush whackers molest our march, or should the inhabitants burn bridges, obstruct roads, or otherwise manifest local hostility, then army commanders should order and enforce a devastation more or less relentless, according to the mea- sure of such hostility.
Nevertheless, commanders had enough success that by devasta- tion rather than moderation had become the guiding principle of feder- al armies in suppressing the insurrection.
This did not mean that the Army had abandoned moderation entirely. Many officers felt uncom- fortable about denying quarter and burning Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less and crops, and even those who endorsed the harshest measures endeavored to prevent their soldiers from degenerating Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less the October - Michael Hoppé - Simple Pleasures of lawlessness that they so despised in the guerrillas.
Nor did the Army act indiscriminately, for while excesses did occur, for the most part federal actions represented what one historian has described as a "directed severity" that was aimed at specific targets most notably upper-class secessionists, guerrillas, and military resources than at Southern society as a whole.
Even Lincoln, who continuously strove to moderate To Kill A Brick - Woody Shaw - Woody Three actions of his field commanders, accepted the necessity of using "hard" policies in overcoming the insurrection. Although commanders felt uncomfort- able with the extreme measures to which they were driven, they assuaged their consciences by holding the Southerners themselves responsible.
As Sheridan explained, "The ultimate result of the guerril- la system of warfare is the total destruction of all private rights in the country occupied by such parties. It was a daunting task, for as Crook observed, "it is impos- sible for any body of troops to march on them without their being apprised of it, and it is impossible to force them to fight unless they want to, for they Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less little or no baggage, and can live on little or nothing.
When approached they disintegrate and hide in the mountains until all danger is over, when they again reassemble for fresh depredations.
Fed, clothed, housed, and informed by civilian sympathizers, the guerrillas assumed a chameleon-like quality, a trait enhanced by their frequent adoption of civilian dress.
Deficiencies in equipment and shortages of trained cavalry contributed to the difficul- ties, but a primary problem was an overall dearth of manpower.
The Army was whipsawed between Confederate main force units on the one hand and the irregulars on the other. While the guerrillas sapped the Army of the strength it needed to defeat rebel main forces decisively, 40 The War of the Rebellion. By compelling the Army to concentrate the majority of its resources on the conventional battlefield, the Confederate Army ensured that the U.
Army would never have enough troops to firmly secure its rear. These posts both protected local populations and resources and served as bases from which patrols radiated out to scour the countryside for guerrillas. The number and size of the posts were contingent upon the available manpower and the nature of the threat. Whether or not such systems Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less depended to a great degree on the balance of forces and the initiative demonstrated by local commanders.
In Missouri, for example. Moreover, most posts were so small that garrison commanders risked being overrun whenever they split their forces to conduct patrols.
Provisioning the many small posts also proved to be a logisti- cal nightmare, since each had to be supplied by convoys that were highly vulnerable to guerrilla attack. Some of these defenses evolved into extensive networks of stockades and outposts all carefully con- nected by systems of patrols.
Armored trains and gunboats provided additional firepower. When Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less failed to work, the Army took more drastic measures.
It defoliated the ground on either side of the tracks and at times removed the population as well. It placed civilian hostages on board trains and threatened to hold the local population responsible for any damage done to the line.
Although the success of such measures varied, they tied down tens of thousands of government soldiers. Herman Haupt. At times, however, the Army even conducted division-size sweeps designed to clear areas of guerrilla concentrations.
What usually deter- mined the success or failure of these operations was not their size, but the amount of drive and ingenuity exhibited by the commanders. Unfortunately, too many officers demonstrated more complacency than initiative in conducting counterguerrilla operations. That many units employed in rear area work were second-line formations undoubtedly contributed to this problem. So, too, did the desultory nature of guer- rilla warfare, which made for many long and uneventful days of monot- onous garrison duty and routine patrolling that inevitably took the edge off units.
All too often, federal units stuck to the main roads and camped in towns rather than take to the "bush. Some were veterans of prewar Indian campaigns, while others learned their trade by trial and error. Crook immediately saw the parallels between Indian and guerrilla warfare and went about 42 The War of the Rebellion, applying the techniques that would later become his trademark.
His first step was to send some of his most intelligent officers into the countryside to learn as much as they could about the land and its peo- ple, paying particular attention to the haunts and habits of the bush- whackers. He supplemented these efforts by recruiting local Unionists to serve as guides. Once this was done, he launched an aggressive cam- paign in which he used small, flying columns to hunt down the guerril- las and drive them toward other detachments waiting in ambush.
He supplemented these activities by burning out disaffected areas and per- mitting his men to execute I Dont Care (If Tomorrow Never Comes) - Hank Williams, Jr.* - The Pressure Is On guerrillas.
Crook employed these techniques throughout the war with some success, eventually adding a specially formed scouting unit to his counterguerrilla repertoire. One such Various - Sanremo 2007 was Maj. Samuel Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less. Curtis, a veteran of counter- guerrilla operations in Mexico, who urged his subordinates to relent- lessly "pursue, strike, and destroy the reptiles.
Henry M. Lazelle who, like Crook, had extensive experience in Indian warfare prior to the outbreak of the rebellion. Lazelle argued cogently that the way to defeat the guerrilla was to beat him at his own game.
Rather than sending out large bodies of regular cavalry, Lazelle believed that the Army should employ small groups of specially select- ed men who would travel by night and hide by day, while spies and friendly residents ferreted out information as to the guerrillas' where- abouts.
Once this information was obtained, the scout units would ambush the irregulars. In some cases they employed spies and "secret service" men to gather information.
Others dressed their men as rebels to ferret out the clan- destine civilian network that supported the guerrillas. Throughout the South, federal officers learned to increase their effectiveness by trav- eling light, avoiding the main roads, and employing unobtrusive advance parties of scouts and Unionists to pave the way for counter- guerrilla expeditions.
Like Crook's 36th Ohio, the 13th Indiana spent a portion of the first year of the war on counterguerrilla duty in western Virginia. Not content to patrol the highways, the 13th took to the hills to strike the bushwhackers on their home turf. The patrols stayed out in the bush for ten to twelve days at a time, engaging in frequent skirmishes with bushwhackers.
The reg- iment was fairly effective and, on at least one occasion, masqueraded as a rebel unit to penetrate deep into secessionist territory. Federal Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less responded by tightening camp and march security and, in some cases, by changing picket pro- cedures so that outpost lines could be more quickly reinforced in case of partisan attack.
Local commanders instituted pass systems to control the flow of civilians, and hence information, to the guerrillas. Since rebel irregulars achieved some of their most notable successes by impersonating federal soldiers, some commands adopted recognition signals or wore distinctive pieces of clothing.
One of the most common adaptations was the creation of bodies of mounted infantry to make up for the Army's perennial shortage of cavalry. For the most part mounted infantrymen were handpicked and exempted from normal infantry duty. Instead, they devoted themselves exclusively to reconnaissance, escort, and counterguerrilla work, providing their regimental commanders with an elite, mobile strike force.
Most regiments mustered no more than a company's worth of mounted scouts, usually less than a hundred men, although the Army did occasionally convert entire Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less into mounted infantry organizations in an effort to counter the superior mobility enjoyed by mounted rebel raiders.
There were actually several kinds of locally based formations. The first and most common type were militia and home guard organi- zations. These units often represented the first line of defense against bushwhackers in Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less border states. Second, the Army occasionally employed independent bands of Unionist guerrillas as guides and sabo- teurs.
More common than Unionist guerrillas were locally raised com- panies of scouts, which the Army used either as independent counter- guerrilla units or as guides for regular troops.
Finally, the Army also recruited regular units in the southern and border states. For example, three regiments of Tennessee mounted infantry were raised under the 44 The War of the Rebellion, command of Brig. Alvan Gillem and collectively known as Gillem's Cossacks. Although given line designations, Gillem's Cossacks were regular in name only. They received virtually no con- ventional training and were employed almost exclusively as raiders and counterguerrillas in eastern Tennessee and North Carolina.
They were assisted in these endeavors by two regiments of Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less Carolina mount- ed infantry raised by the noted Unionist guerrilla George Kirk. Kirk's regiments were even less "regular" than Gillem's, as many of his men lived at home and only assembled when called. Units like Gillem's and Kirk's were in fact the Court Intrigues - Soulstance - Act On! equivalent of the Confederacy's Partisan Rangers, and they proved quite effective in that role.
On the one hand, locally raised units freed the Army's line troops for active service against rebel main forces. Such "native" troops were also familiar with the terrain and people, helping to narrow the advantages the irregulars enjoyed over conven- tional units.
For this reason some commanders preferred them over the regulars for counterguerrilla work. On the other hand, most local units suffered from serious discipline problems, not only because they were poorly trained, but also because of their animosity toward their pro- secessionist neighbors, who had persecuted their families and friends.
Needless to say, the excesses committed by the Army's "native" troops did not help reestablish peace in the southern and border states. Such experiments met with mixed success. One of the first and least successful of the counterguer- rilla units was the Jesse Scouts created by General Fremont upon his arrival in West Virginia in April Commanded by Capt. Carpenter, a veteran of both the prewar guerrilla conflict in Kansas and of John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry, the unit spent most of its time strutting up and down the streets of West Virginia in outlandish cos- Volume - Check This Planet - Im Gone and was eventually disbanded in Stanton created in for the purpose of protecting Unionist citizens and countering guerrillas in northern Virginia.
The rangers had a checkered career, suffering several signifi- cant defeats at the hands of rebel partisans. Nevertheless, the organiza- tion played an active role in many reconnaissance and counterguerrilla Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less during the war. Volunteer Cavalry.
Baker convinced Lincoln and Stanton in the spring of 1 that he needed a military force to aid his police operations, and the War Department authorized him Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less raise four companies of cavalry for that purpose. The 1st D. Volunteer Cavalry quickly became an elite for- mation. Not only was it composed of specially selected men and hors- es, but it was the only cavalry regiment during the war to be outfitted with the magnificent Henry repeating rifle.
The unit specialized in making day and night raids to arrest spies Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat Musical - Donny Osmond, Richard Attenborough, Joan Coll guerrillas in the capital area.
Eventually, Stanton's concerns over the partisan threat led him to double the size of Baker's cavalry arm. Like many elite units, however, success had its price. No sooner had the 1st D. In August Maj. George Crook, in command of the Army of West Virginia, offered Sheridan the use of one of his elite counterguerrilla units for the purpose of hunting down Mosby.
Crook had formed the company-size unit, known as the Legion of Honor, earlier that year by taking select men from a number of regiments in his army and putting them under the command of veteran Indian fighter Capt.
Richard Blazer. Sheridan accepted Crook's offer and armed Blazer's Scouts with Spencer repeaters. Blazer's small band arrived in the Shenandoah Valley in mid- August and immediately went to work against Mosby and other guerrilla bands.
During his first two months in the valley, Blazer killed, wounded, or captured sixty-eight guerrillas.
His success was due not only to his military talents, but also to his public relations skills. One guerrilla complained that Captain Blazer "by his humane and kindly treatment, in striking contrast with the usual conduct of our ene- mies, had so disarmed our citizens that instead of fleeing on his approach and notifying all soldiers, thus giving them a chance to escape, little notice was taken of him.
Consequently, many of our men were 'gobbled up' before they were aware of his presence. He became such an annoyance that Mosby targeted him for destruction, and in mid- November Mosby trapped and destroyed the unit, capturing Blazer in the process.
Henry Young. Young's men served as 46 The War of the Rebellion, scouts and spies for Sheridan's cavalry, often operating in Confederate dress. Sheridan considered Young's Scouts to be quite useful in the counterguerrilla war, and they succeeded in capturing the noted parti- san leader Harry Gilmore. Perhaps the most remarkable counterguerril- la unit was the Mississippi Marine Brigade, an amphibious organiza- tion created in November in response to guerrilla attacks on fed- eral shipping along the Mississippi River.
Over the course of the next two years Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less "marines" led an active life, skirmishing with rebel guer- rillas, conducting raids, and participating in conventional operations. Although effective, the unit was troubled by morale and discipline problems and soon developed a reputation for robbery and arson as it steamed up and down the Mississippi burning towns, destroying plan- tations, and carting off loot. Some of this Goodloveall - Sense Field - Killed For Less was authorized in line with the Army's tough retaliatory policies, but the brigade exer- cised little discretion in picking its targets.
Moreover, the unit's special boats were costly to maintain, and considerations of economy and rep- utation eventually led the Army to disband the marine brigade in Not every officer was a Crook or a Lazelle, nor did every experiment bear fruit. Nevertheless, the Army demonstrated a willingness to employ a wide variety of methods.
It failed, however, to codify the special tactics, with the result that knowledge of these techniques was confined to the memories of veter- ans. Most practitioners agreed that successful counterguerrilla opera- tions depended on aggressive and innovative officers who knew how to adapt the basic principles of combat and petite guerre to the circum- stances of guerrilla warfare. That the Army never managed to eliminate the guerrillas completely was due more to larger problems inherent in the nature of the war itself than to any major deficiencies in its meth- ods.
