See the new Civil War Almanac published by Frank McMillian at www.windingriver.com . Frank has composed a handy guide to the Civil War in the Missouri/Kansas Area. He has listed all the major events in chronological order. For example, did you know that on April 14 1861, Ft. Sumpter surrendered and Jim Lane began enrolling troops into his “Frontier Guards.” These new troops were Kansas men who were in Washington D.C. at that time. They immediately became bodyguards for President Lincoln and lived in the East Room of the White House for more than a week. On April 20, 1861 Missouri men attacked the Federal Arsenal at Liberty, Missouri and took the weapons. The first major overt act against the Federal government by Missourians. This book is filled with similar interesting factual events.
