Missourians were very involved in the war on both sides and numerous units raised for both sides. The state museum has a large collection of flags, mostly Federal since they tended to survive the war better, and have been working to preserve them over the last several years. Here is a link that you can go to and see some of them that have had work done on them.

Thanks for sharing! This is a really neat site and well worth looking at. It was really neat to be able to see the Missouri Brigade Flag that was captured at Franklin. I have been curious about it ever since reading about that particular flag in the book, In Deadly Earnest.
