Exhibits explore Mo.'s divided Civil War loyalties

 

SEDALIA, Mo. (AP) - Two new exhibits in Sedalia explore the divided loyalties of the city and Missouri in the Civil War.

The Sedalia Democrat reports the exhibits opened this week at the Katy Depot.

One is the Missouri Historical Society's free, traveling exhibit called "The Civil War in Missouri." Visitors can enter their ZIP codes into computers to learn about battles in their areas.
The other is "Sedalia and the Civil War," which was curated by a Sedalia historian and costs $1 to tour.

As one of four states that allowed slavery but didn't secede from the Union, Missouri was the site of frequent conflicts. Sedalia played a role in the war as the site of a Union supply house. Near the war's end, the city was captured by Confederates.
