He then made his escape across the Ohio River into Kentucky. Morgan returned to the Confederate army but was killed by Union soldiers less than a year later at Greenville, Tennessee. Morgan's Raid netted few positive results for the Confederate military. The raid diverted over , Union troops from their normal duties for three weeks, which fulfilled the primary mission that the Confederate high command had given to Morgan.
The raid did provide some hope to Confederate civilians that their military could still succeed following the Union victories at Gettysburg and Vicksburg in early July It also caused fear among Indiana and Ohio residents and cost thousands of these people personal property that the raiders had seized. Almost 4, Ohioans filed claims for compensation with the federal government for items that they lost to the Confederates or to Union soldiers and militia during the raid. While the Confederates succeeded in instilling fear in the civilian population, the raid inspired many of these people to fight even harder to defeat the Confederacy.
In addition, the Confederate military lost a large number of veteran cavalrymen. The raid caused no significant harm to the transportation and communication infrastructure of the Union. The Great Raid had as many negative effects as positive ones for the Confederacy.

Ammy cooked meals for them. Nathan was able to increase his fortunes by selling produce to Union soldiers on the Maryland side of the river, as well as Confederates on the Virginia now West Virginia side. He justified his fraternization with the Rebels by supplying information to the Federal troops. Following the war Nathan dismantled most of the Northwest bastion of the fort in order to construct a barn.
Inside the fort he added fences to pen animals, and planted grape vines, produce, and a small orchard. The fields outside the fort were also tilled and cultivated. As a testimony to his success, Nathan acquired more property and expanded his agrarian ventures.

His work on that book drew his attention to the Muscatine County Civil War Memorial, where he noticed a conspicuous disparity between the number of names displayed on the memorial and the actual number of Muscatine County soldiers who died during the Civil War. The explanation was that when the memorial was built in , the full account of Iowa's Civil War dead had not been completed. This new monument bears the full complement of names of Muscatine County men who died in the Civil War.
Thus he was inspired to write the first regimental history of the 35th. The 35th Iowa had a unusually active combat record. Forty-nine offices and men were killed or mortally wounded in combat, including their beloved commander Sylvester Hill, and another died of disease. Published , ISBN: Second Edition now available!

Unfortunately Gene died in , leaving a manuscript about a notorious Montana pioneer named Pike Landusky, originally from Gene's part of Missouri, who gained fame as a cattleman, miner, scout, and Indian fighter, until being murdered in his own saloon by the gunfighter Kid Curry of the Hole in the Wall Gang. Gene's widow Elaine thought it would be a shame to see all of her husband's research go to waste, so she contacted me to have Gene's last book published.
The Toughest Man In Montana thoroughly tracks the genealogy of the Landusky family, while telling the true history of Powell "Pike" Landusky, a story that some tried to sully after the pioneer's death. The Toughest Man in Montana is a page paperback with maps, photographs, appendices, bibliography, and an index.
