Backlist:

If you haven’t visited the Missouri Civil War Museum website lately, it’s worth a whole new look. Earlier this year, they redesigned the site, located at www.mcwm.org, adding more Missouri Civil War information and giving it a good “polish”. Plans are to continue updating the site on a regular basis. The site features the ongoing work at Jefferson Barracks National Historic Site and the 1905 Post Exchange Building , home to the Missouri Civil War Museum. The future will show that this group will build Missouri ’s largest and finest Civil War museum, library, and educational center. (As reported in Civil War News).
