Title: Civil War Collection, 1860-1977 (bulk 1861-1865)


The Civil War Collection comprises individual documents and small collections relating to the war, which were acquired by the Missouri Historical Society by donation and purchase from numerous sources since the society's founding in 1866. These items have been placed in the Civil War Collection because of their common subject matter (i.e., the Civil War). The manuscripts in this collection relate primarily to affairs in Missouri and to the affairs and operations of Missouri troops, both Confederate and Union, primarily in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee. The collection includes personal papers, such as correspondence, diaries, and reminiscences; official military papers, such as muster rolls, loyalty oaths, paroles, and special and general orders; and newspapers.

Conservation funding for a portion of this collection provided through a grant from the Institute of Museums and Library Services.
