The Missouri-Kansas border is where the Civil War started in the 1850’s. Missouri was divided about leaving the Union.  Loyalist German immigrants were densely populated in St. Louis. Pro-south secessionists were equally represented as well. Gov. Jackson tried to take Missouri out of the Union. Capt. Lyon thwarted his plans in St. Louis.

Bob Long and Tom Wilson will discuss early Civil War history in Missouri including the Battle of Wilson’s Creek.
