Missouri Women and Children in the Civil War

In Recognition of Women’s History Month - The Civil War is often thought of in terms of soldiers fighting in faraway battles and skirmishes. Although this was most certainly the case, there was another, less visible war fought at home and on, or near, the battlefield by women and children. In Missouri, these segments of the population often did much more than passively wait for their husbands and fathers to return home from military service. For most, the reality of living in a war zone meant they developed new skills and strengths. Driven by political views, faith and necessity, they left behind traditional roles to become heads of household, cooks and nurses, even smugglers and spies. Join us as author Robert Schultz presents select stories of these fascinating women and children who actively took part in the war. City: Jefferson City. Additional Event Information: Free Admission.

19th Century Steamboats and the Missouri River Trade

Retired Southern Illinois University Professor of Architecture Robert Swenson will present his research on 19th century steamboats built at Metropolis, Illinois, on the lower Ohio River. These vessels played an important, yet largely unknown role in America’s history and westward expansion. The William J. Lewis, built in Metropolis in 1867, made two trips along the treacherous 2,000-mile stretch of Missouri River between St. Louis and Fort Benton, Montana, carrying military items and household goods. Attesting this amazing feat are the hundreds of steamboat wrecks from the same period that line the river. Swenson will discuss the beginning of steamboat design and build technology, as well as trade on the Ohio, Mississippi and Missouri rivers. He will also examine James Eads’ Civil War connection to the Ohio River towns of Metropolis and Mound City and the role of Metropolis in building steamboats for the St. Louis to Fort Benton Missouri River trade and the St. Louis to New Orleans Mississippi River trade.
