Ewing's intent was to reach the railroad at Leasburg and take his group by train to safety in St. Louis. But the Confederates rapidly sent detachments east and west of Leasburg to destroy track. In Cuba they burned the depot and several boxcars, as well as Sweetin's and Upshaw's stores. Price's troops, chronically short of supplies, raided nearby farms looking for food, weapons and clothing.
Rescue at Leasburg

The exhausted Federals arrived at Leasburg near dusk on the 29th and took shelter in a railroad cut, stacking cordwood and ties for protection. A continual fire was exchanged through the night and following day. On the morning of October 1st, a lookout spotted a column of cavalry. As they drew near, the stars and stripes appeared — reinforcements from the Union garrison at Rolla. The Rebels gave up and moved on. General Ewing's command celebrated the end of their ordeal.
