One of my favorite things about the Spring and Summer months is to get out and explore battlefields, museums, and historic sites. I have compiled a list of upcoming events (lectures and tours) that are about Missouri in the Civil War.
Note: These events were compiled by Kristen Pawlak. None of the following events have paid advertising on this site. If there is an event missing from this list, please visit the Contact Page.
