"Every man in Missouri, whatever his politics, his religion, or his beverage . . . has reason to believe that a braver man than Frank Blair never set foot on Missouri soil or any other soil. No one hereabouts whose hope of eternal life was not well assured, would ever think of drawing a knife or pistol on Frank."—Anonymous Missourian to a reporter for the New York Sun

Parrish is the leading historian of Civil War-era Missouri. His work focuses heavily on Blair's political life, but also provides details on his subject's family life. Due to the subjects' relative obscurity and the heavy concentration on politics, this work will appeal to Civil War specialists only.
