The Civil War in Missouri was a time of great confusion,
violence, and destruction. Although several major battles were
fought in the state between Confederate and Union forces, much of
the fighting in Missouri was an ugly form of terrorism carried out
by loose bands of Missouri guerrillas, by Kansas "Jayhawkers," or
by marauding patrols of Union soldiers. This irregular warfare
provided a training ground for people like Jesse and Frank James
who, after the war, used their newly learned skills to form an
outlaw band that ultimately became known all over the world.
Jesse James and the Civil War in Missouri discusses the
underlying causes of the Civil War as they relate to Missouri and
reveals how the war helped create both the legend and the reality
of Jesse James and his gang. Written in an accessible style, this
valuable little book will be welcomed by anyone with an interest in
the Civil War, the legend of Jesse James, or Missouri history.
