Writer/Editor, " Luring Shadows "


There were 340 inmates housed at the St.Louis City Insane Asylum in 1878. One character was known as " Emperor of America." His real name was Lutz and he first appeared in St.Louis around 1876, about the time of the National Democratic Convention. He was dressed in a suit made of flags and was arrested for breaking out plate-glass windows with a club around Sixth Street and Washington Avenue. He claimed God appeared before him while he was living in Germany and commissioned him Emperor and absolute ruler. Another inmate went by the handle " President of the Irish Republic." He claimed Queen Victoria was responsible for his incarceration and after her death he would depart for Ireland where his agents had already prepared everything for the organization of the great Christian republic, from which all injustice and wrongs of every sort will be at once and forever excluded.

General Order No. 11 is the title of a Union Army directive issued during the American Civil War on August 25, 1863, forcing the evacuation of rural areas in four counties in western Missouri; Bates, Cass, Jackson, and part of Vernon. The order was issued by Union General Thomas Ewing Jr. and approved by Abraham Lincoln.

Caroline Abbot Stanley (1849-1919)
Callaway County, Missouri
Author, " Order No. 11 "

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caroline_Abbot_Stanley



The horror of the times is described in the following letter written in 1863, by William Edwards, a 12 year-old boy at the time of Order Number 11. He was a resident of Harrisonville in Cass County.

Dear Jimmy,

I just got pushed out of my house by the federals. They took nearly everything. They left me with a wee bit of food, gunpowder, the musket I hid in the cellar, and a wagon.
I think I will try to get to Charles' house in Oxford, Kansas, if it hasn't been raided by Quantrill. They got the land from the Black Bob Indians last year. I am sure they won't mind another mouth to feed. Ever since Pa went to fight for the Rebs and Grandpa got sick and died, it's been very hard for me to run this farm all by my lonesome. I'm just glad Ma and Sis are safe in Georgia. When they issued the order, I thought it was just a big joke. I was wrong, dead wrong. It could be dangerous for me to go to Kansas, I hear there's whole brigades of Feds just waiting for some Reb like me. I hope I stay away from here too, this place ain't safe for anybody anymore. I hope I'll meet up with you again soon, you're about the only person I'm looking forward to seeing. And I don't even know if I'll ever see you again.

Sincerely Your Friend
William Edwards
