MISSOURI'S CIVIL WAR: DIGGING UP THE PAST AND GIVING IT A NEW FACE

St. Louis, MO. April 13, 2013 - The Civil War may have happened over 150 years ago, but big things are still happening with Missouri's Civil War Heritage Foundation (MCWHF).

In news along the Gray Ghosts Trail, MCWHF sponsored an archeology survey in Callaway County, Missouri, that was completed on March 21, 2013. Dr. Doug Scott of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln led over 50 archeologists, volunteers and students at the site of the 1862 Battle of Moore's Mill. Details of the survey and its results are the subject of a recent feature article in Vox Magazine.

Gregory Wolk, executive director of the foundation and author of the book, Friend and Foe Alike: A Tour Guide to Missouri's Civil War, is featured in the current April 2013 issue of Missouri Life Magazine. His article, "Following Grant," highlights how the U.S. Grant Trail along eastern and central Missouri showcases the president's legacy.
