    Excellent Civil War History

    This 1909 book is a very fine account of the political and military events in MO from the secession of SC(1860) up to and including the Battle of Pea Ridge, AR, in 1862. The book is especially noteworthy in that it contains a great deal of the contemporary correspondence from the principal military and political leaders on both sides of the conflict.The book is dedicated to "the Union Men of Missouri" and has a definite northern bias which is especially evident in the first chapter which contains an extremely unflattering portrait of pre-war southern society. But the author is relatively even handed throughout the remainder of the book and even seems to develop a grudging respect for Confederate general Sterling Price.My main criticism(and it's a relatively small one) is that the book stops with Pea Ridge since, in the author's words, "the battle for Missouri had been fought and won". Though this is correct, it must be added that Sterling Price again invaded MO... 4/5 rw-chesterfield,MO - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: The Struggle for Missouri (Kindle Edition) I always thought the Battle of Wilson's Creek was a minor Civil War skirmish it was a big event in the war. I wish the Kindle book had illustrations though, without maps it' s a little hard to follow.

    0 3/5 Amazon Customer (Missouri) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Backroads & Byways of Missouri: Drives, Day Trips & Weekend Excursions (Backroads & Byways) (Paperback) The routes outlined in this guide are filled with the history and geographic wonders of Missouri...if you limit yourself to two-thirds of the state. Central Missouri and Southwest Missouri are virtually ignored. That omission includes Lake of the Ozarks and Jefferson City, which is the CAPITAL, for Pete's sake. There are many historic and natural attractions from Civil War battlefields to rugged state parks in the central and southwest portions of Missouri that virtually anyone would appreciate on some level. So, buy this guide and enjoy the routes contained therein...just know you're missing a lot. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 7, 2011

    BackRoads & ByWays of Missouri, Drives, Day Trips & Weekend Excurions

    Fabulous book. Well written, great factual history that grabs the reader and makes them a part of why the area discussed by the author is worthwhile visiting. My wife and I just returned yesterday from his Kansas City, Weston and St. Joseph trip as well as his Gallatin, Jamesport and Kirksville trip, coupled with some of the bed and breakfasts in between, followed up by the Edina to Bethel ride. We also had time to drive along The Great River Road Ride and stay at The Garth Mansion in Hannibal. The Garth Mansion was SUPURB!! (FOR SURE)and deeply added pleasure to our already great trip. PLUS, YOU CANT BEAT THE HOME MADE FOOD and AMBIANCE AT GARTH MANSION>>>>>THE BEST BY FAR>>>> We had a blast!!!!! We followed his suggestions to the letter and added some of our own. We were more than 100% satisfied and will follow the exact route for the rest of the book.. His clarity of his presentation and accuracy of his suggestions/experiences was precisely our experiences.

    Fantastic Book On Missouri For Both Kids And Adults!

    This book is GREAT! As a school teacher, I'm delighted to have this book in my classroom. As a parent, I'm delighted to have it at home. It's an alphabet book, a poetry book, a textbook, and an art book all in one! Though I have lived in Missouri all my life, I sure learned some new things by reading S is for Show Me. I learned about the Kimmswick Bone Beds where mastodons used to live. I learned that nearly all corncob pipes in the world are made in Washington, MO! I learned about caves, springs, animals, ice cream cones, the Pony Express, the Civil War and so much more. This book should be read over and over because there is so much information that it just can't be absorbed in the initial reading. The illustrations are beautiful. Many of the paintings contain hidden details that my kids love to search for. The poems are fun to read aloud to young children and give them just enough information to spark their curiosity. But each page also has a sidebar of text that provides more... 5/5 Elaine Russell (St. Louis, Missouri) - See all my reviews This review is from: S is for Show Me: A Missouri Alphabet (Discover America State by State) (Hardcover) This book is GREAT!
