The Homefront in Civil War Missouri

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

3-4pm

Over one thousand Civil War engagements were fought in Missouri, and the conflict could not be quarantined from civilian life.  James Erwin, author of The Homefront in Civil War Missouri, will be sharing stories about the turbulence and bitterness of a war that was everywhere.  In the countryside, the wives and mothers of absent soldiers had to cope with marauders from both sides.  Children saw their fathers and brothers beaten, hanged, or shot.  In the cities, a cheer for Jeff Davis could land a young boy in jail, and a letter to a sweetheart in the Confederate army could get a girl banished from the state.

For everyone. 

 

 

All programs take place in the Library Meeting Room unless otherwise stated
