Missouri Digital Heritage :: Divided Loyalties Opening Exhibit :: Divided Loyalties Audio Tour :: Panel 10 - Missouri at War - (The Final Attempt to Win Missouri)
Missouri ranked third among states in number of military actions fought during the Civil War, although few of these actions were large scale battles. In the summer and fall of 1864, Confederate guerillas attacked the citizens of northern Missouri with renewed intensity in an attempt to draw Union troops away from the state's southern border so that General Sterling Price could make a last attempt to win Missouri.
The documents on these panels are accounts from Missouri military officers describing the movements of the guerrillas during the attacks of the summer.
