" And when they were loaded down with prisoners, plunder, and stock, I attacked them on the high praririe, four miles east of Butler, at Bill Campbell's, with sixty men charging right into them. It was so unexpected and so complete a surprise, they were greatly excited, and being armed with Sharps Rifles, over-shot us. The result was a diastrous defeat to the robbers, having five men killed on the field, losing all their stolen stock, and most of their wagons of plunder, and all the prisoners eight in number." - Confederate Colonel Sidney Drake Jackman - Missouri State Guard - Fighting a Company of Jayhawkers Near Butler, Missouri, - Early Summer 1862 - From his published diary, " Behind Enemy Lines," edited by Richard L. Norton.
