“Missouri's War is well suited for classroom and reference use, and deserves placement in personal and institutional libraries. Students of the middle western states’s roles in the Civil War should look forward to the publication of future volumes in the series. Recommended.”

“Missouri’s War, edited by Silvana R. Siddali, is a concise and thoughtfully compiled volume detailing the complexities that defined the state during a tumultuous time.… Certainly, Siddali’s volume will appeal to scholars engaged with nineteenth-century Missouri and the border states, but this readable and scholarly book also serves as a strong example of how remarkably well a skillfully compiled collection of sources can work.”
“(Silvana Siddali) has created the perfect introduction to Missouri primary sources relating to the American Civil War, a fitting addition to the remarkable Civil War in the Great Interior series published by the Ohio University Press.… This volume is an excellent, inexpensive starting point for students, at any level, writing research papers about Missouri and the Civil War.”
