Author Gregory Wolk, the president of Missouris Civil War Heritage Foundation, Inc. discusses his new book, A Tour Guide to Missouris Civil War, the first comprehensive sesquicentennial drivers guide to Civil War battlefield sites in Missouri.
To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War, Wolks book highlights more than 230 sites and scores of little-known historical facts. Missouri witnessed more Civil War battles than any other state except Virginia and Tennessee. Wolk notes in the book that almost half of the battles fought in 1861 occurred in Missouri.
