THE CIVIL WAR IN ST. LOUIS; A Guided Tour

St. Louis, MO: Missouri Historical Society Press, 1995. Third printing. Paperback. 8 1/2 x 11, 179 pgs, index, bibliography, notes, b&w and color illustrations and maps. "St. Louis on the eve of the Civil War was a highly volatile mixture of sectional divisions and ethnic tension. A pro-Confederate governor who plotted with Jefferson Davis to seize the city's Federal arsenal, a pro-Union congressman from a powerful political family, a large population of European immigrants, and a long history of mixed feelings toward the 'peculiar institution' of slavery made the outcome of the struggle for control of St. Louis anything but certain." Very Good. Item #30101
