The Civil War and the Home Front in St. Louis Court Records (with Mike Everman, Missouri State Archives-St. Louis)

Since 1999, the Missouri State Archives has worked to make accessible on microfilm and online the records of the St. Louis Circuit Court. Recent work covering 1861-1865 offers the civil and criminal court records as well as an index of the parallel records of the Union provost marshal when the area was under martial law. Examples from these complementary records offer a time machine to reconstruct the lives and personal and business relationships of citizens during this turbulent time.
