Every document tells a story, especially those penned during the drama of the American Civil War. In 2009-2010, the Missouri History Museum partnered with 25 libraries and historical institutions around Missouri and the U.S. to gather thousands of Civil War documents for a digital collection now available online. Chris Gordon, director of the Missouri History Museum's Library and Collections, tells the fascinating stories revealed in selected documents from the collection and shows how you can access this collection.
