Springfield-Greene County Library District and Partners Community & Conflict: the Impact of the Civil War in the Ozarks
Community & Conflict: The Impact of the Civil War in the Ozarks, is a collaborative digitization effort to document the war in the Trans-Mississippi Theater. Traditional Civil War scholarship has focused on events east of the Mississippi River. Events in Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, the Indian Territory (modern day Oklahoma), Louisiana, and Texas have received comparatively little attention. To address this scholarly gap, seven organizations in southwest Missouri began development of Community & Conflict in 2007. The project was funded by Library Services and Technology Act digital imaging grants from the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Missouri State Library. The project has grown since 2007 to include materials from institutions listed below.
This collection includes documents and artifacts that depict life in the Ozarks between 1850 and 1875. The collection contains first hand perspectives of the Civil War through the eyes of soldiers, civilians, merchants and farmers, as told through letters, maps, diaries, court records and photographs.
