The Big Divide
Great ready to rethink everything you knew about the Civil War. Did you know it was on the prairies of Kansas where the first shots in America's bloodiest conflict were fired? That it was Missouri where the first African-American soldiers was sent into battle - against orders from Washington? Those are just two of the many surprising finds you'll make when you explore the Missouri-Kansas Border Region with this guide specially designed for budget travelers and history buffs.
Since it was first published in 2013, The Big Divide has made its way into thousands of glove boxes and travel bags. Inside this completely updated edition you'll find 130 hand-selected sites and battlefields, themed driving tours, suggestions for parents and kids, maps, informative essays, and the insights of two experienced road trippers.
