Divided State: Missouri Military Organizations in the Civil War was created to serve as an aid to genealogists and historians searching for information about particular Missouri Civil War regiments and regiment members. It is intended to serve as a supplement to such primary information sources as the records maintained by the Missouri State Archives in Jefferson City, and the National Archives in Washington, D.C..
Divided State is a selective, annotated guide to information published in periodicals and books about various Missouri Civil War era military organizations (Union and Confederate). The sources cited can vary widely in scope and content. Some offer regimental histories; some accounts of particular battles; some lists or partial lists of regiment members; and some are lists of men from many regiments which contain the names of some men from the regiment in question. All cited sources will contain some information about the regiment under consideration.
Listings for periodical articles provide the following information: periodical title, volume number, issue date, page number(s), and a brief annotation.
Annotations provide an idea of the article's contents, and should thus alert the researcher to articles of potential relevance.
Listings for books and book sets provide the following information, when relevant: author, title, place of publication, publisher, date of publication, series number, volume number, page number(s), and a brief annotation. Annotations provide an idea of the book's contents, and should thus alert the researcher to books of potential relevance.
