The Missouri State Archives holds nearly 1½ million pages that
document the service of Missourians in domestic and foreign wars between 1812 and World
War I. These military records primarily consist of individual service cards, but the
extensive collection also includes muster rolls, special orders, reports, and more.
The Soldiers Database is a comprehensive database abstracted from the individual
service cards and listing more than 576,000 Missourians who served in the military from
territorial times through World War I. It includes entries for twelve wars and military
engagements in which Missouri soldiers took part. These range from well-known wars, such
as the War of 1812, the Mexican War, the Spanish-American War, and World War I, to the
battles that were peculiarly Missourian, including the Heatherly War of 1836, the Mormon
War of 1838, and the Iowa (Honey) War of 1839. The bulk of the service cards, over 380,000
of them, record the fractured history of Missouri during the bloodiest of all American
wars - the Civil War. (Thanks to Tina Wells for sending in this description!).
