Throughout the site, you'll find details about Civil War battles that took places in Missouri, such as Wilson's Creek and Pilot Knob; the people who played a significant role in the war, such as Ulysses S. Grant and Sterling Price; and resources for educators, where links to lesson plans and teacher's guides are available.

You'll also find information about Civil War-related attractions in Missouri, such as the Old Courthouse, Battle of Lexington State Historic Site, and Calvary Cemetery, to name a few.
