Financial Fraud and Guerrilla Violence in Missouri's Civil War, 1861-1865

Mark W. Geiger describes how, during the Civil War, planters in the border state of Missouri had bet on the South's victory and that the financial scheme they devised had backfired. The resulting collateral damage to the state's pro-Confederate citizens set off a series of worsening consequences that ultimately cost thousands of people their property and many, their lives.
