Written for novices and Civil War buffs alike, The Civil War’s First Blood: Missouri, 1854-1861 takes a reader’s hand and walks them down back roads, through swamps and prairies, and over hills to experience the war that pitted Missourian against Missourian. Though it is commonly accepted that the first battle of the Civil War was fought in Virginia at Manassas, James Denny and John Bradbury tell a different story.  The authors outline in great detail the events that brought about civil war in a young country and lead readers through Missouri’s role from the first battle at Boonville to the battles at Carthage, Wilson’s Creek, Athens, Lexington, and Belmont, all in 1861. They also introduce some of the early Missouri Civil War superstars, such as Nathaniel Lyon, Sterling Price, and a young Ulysses S. Grant, who would influence the direction the state would sway-North or South-throughout the conflict. 8 1/4" x 10 3/4", 138 pages, 140 photos and illustrations, softcover
