I think it's time for a little clue on this one.

"The second skirmish at Byram's Ford took place on the 23rd, forming a part of the larger Battle of Westport, which was raging nearby. Having dislodged Blunt's division the day before, Confederates under Marmaduke now held the west bank of the Big Blue to prevent Pleasanton from attacking Price's rear. Pleasonton began his assault on Byram's Ford around 8 a.m. Initially the Confederates held their own. One of the Union brigade commanders, Brig. Gen. Egbert B. Brown, stalled his attack and was arrested by Pleasonton for disobeying orders. Another of Pleasonton's brigade commanders, Col. Edward F. Winslow, was wounded and succeeded by Lt. Col. Frederick Benteen, who later rode to fame at the Little Bighorn. Despite these setbacks, Federal troops gained the west bank by 11 a.m. and Marmaduke retired. Price now faced two Federal armies, one to his front, and one to his rear, each of which outnumbered his beleaguered force. The outcome of the Battle of Westport was sealed, although the fighting would continue until that evening."

I think I'd go with Pleasa(o)nton in the morning.

I know where it is. I'm not going to sit on it very long.

Hell, I followed Pleasonton, Marmaduke and Price all over the Blue River valley with no joy. Well, no horse-drawn road grader, anyway.

Any day on the bike = joy.

So how about another hint? I'm stumped and headed thru KC on the way to STL today.

Sorry for the delay. You have to think about generally where Pleasanton was in the morning, on which side of the river. There are few roads on that side of the river near Byram's Ford. The grader is on that road, although not exactly where Bryam was a-fordin'.

Thanks, Eddie. I was afraid I had killed the thread.
