Only Virginia and Tennessee had more Civil War engagements than Missouri. The Battle of Lexington early in the war, the Battle of Lone Jack near the middle of the war and the Battle of Westport late in the war all occurred in western Missouri. The Civil War Round Table of Western Missouri studies them and more. Each month the Round Table meets to hear speakers present topics related to the war and local attractions.
The Civil War Round Table of Western Missouri is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, tax exempt organization, dedicated to educational purposes including the promotion and understanding of all aspects and phases of the U.S. Civil War period, especially in WESTERN MISSOURI and the "BORDER WAR" conflict and to stimulate interest in and further discussion and study of the War Between the States.
