Explore the beginning of the Civil War in St. Louis. What was happening around the area, The St. Louis Arsenal, and Jefferson Barracks? Who were the main actors in the opening stages of the war? Learn about a few of the men who were to lead both sides and who served at Jefferson Barracks before taking center stage during the conflict. Men such as Ulysses S. Grant, Robert E. Lee, William T. Sherman and many more had called Jefferson Barracks and St. Louis home. Time permitting we will take a look at some of the early battle that shaped the war in Missouri.
