Photographs of Ancestors (Missouri Soldiers, Sailors, and Prominent Civilians) or a soldier’s story of the Civil War
The Missouri Civil War Museum maintains a large research database of Missouri Civil War veterans. This database contains photographs, letters, pension records, military records, and other items and documents that pertain to each of these soldiers. To help expand this ever growing record system, we are looking for original or copies of photographs of Missouri soldiers and prominent Missouri civilians of the Civil War. Some of these photos will also be utilized in the many exhibit displays at the museum.
Items of any Era that relate to the Jefferson Barracks Military Post
The Missouri Civil War Museum will have several museum galleries dedicated to the history of Jefferson Barracks. We are interested in obtaining artifacts and items that relate to the Jefferson Barracks site regardless of their era. From the Mexican War to the present-day soldiers who are stationed at Jefferson Barracks, we are looking for old uniforms, equipment, and other memorabilia to complete our Jefferson Barracks history galleries.
