Missouri Digital Heritage :: Divided Loyalties Opening Exhibit :: Divided Loyalties Audio Tour :: Panel 13 - Confederate Records - (The Confederate Story, One Soldier's Paper Trail)
This panel presents a few of the Confederate documents housed in the Missouri State Archives. Because the pro-Southern state government fled Jefferson City to southern Missouri and later Texas, not many of its records made it back to Jefferson City after the war ended.
Up to this point we have shown glimpses into the lives of enlisted soldiers, elected officials, and military officers. However, much of the violence of the civil war took place off the battlefield. The next panel tells us how Missouri civilians were drawn into the conflict.
