9780826209597: Jesse James and the Civil War in Missouri (MISSOURI HERITAGE READERS)

The Civil War in Missouri was a time of great confusion, violence, and destruction. Although several major battles were fought in the state between Confederate and Union forces, much of the fighting in Missouri was an ugly form of terrorism carried out by loose bands of Missouri guerrillas, by Kansas "Jayhawkers," or by marauding patrols of Union soldiers. This irregular warfare provided a training ground for people like Jesse and Frank James who, after the war, used their newly learned skills to form an outlaw band that ultimately became known all over the world.

Jesse James and the Civil War in Missouri discusses the underlying causes of the Civil War as they relate to Missouri and reveals how the war helped create both the legend and the reality of Jesse James and his gang. Written in an accessible style, this valuable little book will be welcomed by anyone with an interest in the Civil War, the legend of Jesse James, or Missouri history.

Review:

"Fantastic! I couldn't put it down. Informative and revealing. The interweaving of the history of the Civil War and the legend of Jesse James is inspired. What an intriguing way to present or teach history to any age group or reader ability!"--Diane Lambert, teacher of English as a Second Language in the Parkway Area Adult Basic Education Program, St. Louis
