GREEN, Martin E., soldier, born in Lewis County, Missouri, about 1825; died in Vicksburg, Mississippi, 27 June, 1863. At the beginning of the civil war he organized a regiment near Paris, Missouri, and, joining General Sterling Price, contributed largely to the success of the Confederates in the capture of Lexington, Missouri, and the Union garrison commanded by Colonel James A. Mulligan. He ordered his men to roll hemp-bales up the river-bank, which formed movable breastworks. After this battle he was appointed brigadier-general, served with General Price throughout the Missouri campaign, and was conspicuous for bravery in the battles of Farming-ton, Iuka, Corinth, and Baker's (!reek.

In this powerful, historic work, Stan Klos unfolds the complex 15-year U.S.
Founding period revealing, for the first time, four distinctly different United
American Republics. This is history on a splendid scale -- a book about the not
quite unified American Colonies and States that would eventually form a fourth
republic, with only 11 states, the United States of America: We The
People. Click Here
