The fifteenth book in my series, “Civil War Personalities 50 At a Time,” entitled, CIVIL WAR MISSOURIANS, will be available soon. The ebook should be available as a pre-order next week.
It was a real education writing this book. Missouri was a border state where all the forces which brought and wrought the Civil War came together and created an internecine conflict likely unmatched in any other state.
On the cover I’ve featured nine representative individuals: Sterling Price; Mark Twain; Nathaniel Lyon; Dred Scott; Mary Meachum; Claiborne Jackson; the James Brothers, Frank and Jesse; and Franz Sigel. In the center of the cover is the Missouri monument at the Vicksburg Battlefield Park. It underlines the divisiveness of the war in the state as it, unlike the other state monuments, is dedicated to both sides in the conflict since its citizens fought on both sides.
