Mark your calendars for our annual commemoration of Missouri’s secession from the Union.
On October 28, 1861, the Missouri legislature took up a bill for Missouri’s secession from the Union and it was passed on October 30, 1861. The next day, on October 31, it was signed by Governor Jackson.
Acting on the ordinance passed by the Jackson government, the Confederate Congress admitted Missouri as the 12th confederate state on November 28, 1861.
False rumors of Missouri’s “neutrality” during the War Between the States continues among revisionists to this very day.
To keep the record straight and provide clarity to this historic event, the Missouri Society of the Military Order of Stars and Bars pays annual tribute to the brave men behind this historic event.
