History of Caldwell County, Missouri
As written in the 1876 Atlas of Caldwell County Missouri

The Mexican War

Up to the commencement of the Mexican war in 1846, there had been little demand for the farm-products of the County, and no good market for horses and cattle; but Leavenworth became the depot for outfitting and furnishing supplies to the forces under the command of Generals Doniphan, Harney, and Price, and drew largely for its supplies on this portion of the State. This created a brisk demand for horses for cavalry and for cattle, corn and pork, which largely increased their production, and trebled their value.

Many young men from this County were in the commands of Doniphan and Price, and acquitted themselves with honor. But owing to the destruction of the records it is impossible to give their names.
