Gregory Wolk is a local lawyer and the president of Missouri's Civil War Heritage Foundation, and he wrote this book for the sesquicentennial of the Civil War. Did you know that, next to Virginia and Tennessee, Missouri had the most Civil War battles of any other state? So. Wolk has divided the state into 5 "tour loops" with a few connecting loops, and created 5 detailed tours of Civil War sites, including directions, maps, short biographies of the players, and a wonderful running narrative of the war in Missouri, including many of the guerrilla conflicts (and there were a lot). I can't say that I ever really thought of Missouri in terms of the Civil War, and I've lived here all my life. Shame on me. ( )
