Missouri (US):

 

a. Übersicht:

 

Der Slave-State Missouri grenzte an zwei Seiten an die sklavenfreie Staaten Iowa und Indiana. Bereits im Konflikt of 'Bloody Kan­sas' 1854 bestand in Missouri die Befürchtung, daß falls Kansas sklavenfrei würde, Missouri auch an der Westgrenze von Abolition­isten umgeben sein würde. 1854 hatte Missouri eine Sklaven-Bevölkerung von 100000 Menschen, von denen 2/3 in Plantagen in den Counties an der Kansas-Border 'gehalten' wurden (vgl. Starr, Jennison's Jayhawkers, a.a.O., S. 4; Nevins: Ordeal of the Union [vol 5]: The Improvised War, a.a.O., S. 332; Lewis, Lloyd: "Propaganda and the Kansas-Missouri-War," Missouri Historical Review, XX­XIV [1939], S. 14).

 

Missouri ist in der Frage der Konföderation der zerstrittenste Staat. Missourier ziehen für den Norden (110000) und Süden (40000) in den Krieg. Der Krieg geht durch die Familien. Regulären Truppen und Heimwehrverbänden der Union stehen prosüdliche Milizen, Guerillaverbände und Grenzbanditen gegenüber (Längin S. 40).

 

Ende 1861 erreichte der Kampf um Missouri einen Höhepunkt. Unionstruppen hielten St. Louis, während die sezessionistische Misso­uri State Guard sich um Springfield (Karte bei Davis Nr. 135 A) im Südwesten des Staates konzentrierten.Missouri's Schicksal und der künftige Verlauf des Bürgerkrieges in der Transmississippi Region wurde im Frühjahr 1863 auf dem Schlachtfeld von *Pea Ridge im äußersten Nordwesten von Arkansas nahe der Grenze entschieden wurde (vgl. Shea / Hess, Pea Ridge, a.a.O., S. 1).

 

The total number of men who served from Missouri on the side of the Union was approxiamately 110,000 and 90,000 on the side of the Confederacy but the total number will never be known for sure. The following list of Urion Forces from Missouri has been gene­rated by the Missouri Commandery of MOLLUS from Frederick H. Dyer's "A Compendium of the War of the Rebellion, V.III" and includes 445 Union troops. This three volume set can be found in many libraries.
