Issue: Spring 2000
In 1861, Americans questioned which states would join the secession movement and which would remain loyal to the Union. In Missouri, it was largely settled at Wilson's Creek, in a contest that is rightly considered the second major battle of the Civil War. Wilson's Creek provides the first in-depth narrative and analysis of this important but largely overlooked battle.
