The series was created in partnership with The Missouri Bar. This is the second Civil War series released by Missouri Press this year.

A 10-part series, “A Nation Divided: The Civil War,” begins with a look at Stephen Douglas and the politics of slavery through the Civil War and then Reconstruction. 

Each feature includes well-written text, a timeline of events from 1854 through 1877, and historical images.

Ten companion educational pages are available and can be posted on your newspaper’s website. To access this series, visit and use download code civilwar.
