Map showing location of Confederate partisan activity during September, 1864.

According to the official records of the Civil War (which includes this dispatch from September 28, 1864 at 4.20 p. m.), such guerilla attacks were effective:

A large force of guerrillas crossed from Jackson to Clay County last night and are this morning threatening Liberty. I have ordered re-enforcements to Clay County, and directed General Craig to place in service forthwith all the reliable militia. Guerrillas swarming in every brush patch. Quite a large force are threatening Glasgow.
