Brooks Blevins Presents The Conflicted Ozarks: A Region at War
August 27, 2019 — No place in the U.S. was more devastated by the Civil War than the Ozarks, a region that straddled the border between the Union and the Confederacy. Marching armies, battles, divided loyalties and guerrilla warfare turned much of the Ozarks into a lawless and deadly no-man's-land.
Discussing his book, "A History of the Ozarks, Volume 2: The Conflicted Ozarks," Dr. Brooks Blevins will explain what made the Ozarks such a dangerous place during the Civil War and how the war impacted the region for generations to come.
Blevins will speak at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17, in the Library Center auditorium. Books will be available for sale and signing. Provided in partnership with the Ozarks Studies Institute, an initiative of the Missouri State University Libraries. Call 882-0714.
