New item added to Genealogy Collection

I'm happy to announce the addition of a local history book regarding the Civil War in Missouri which was originally published in 1996. "The 9th Missouri Infantry Regiment, C.S.A. and the 12th Missouri Regiment, C.S.A." by Jerry Ponder.  It is located on the Missouri Shelves in the Genealogy/Reference area with the call number of G-R 929.3778 PONDER. 

Happy searching!
