Buried for years in family files, this important firsthand Civil War account of Franklin Dick's experiences as Union assistant adjutant general and Missouri provost marshal general gives a new view of politics, power, and divided loyalties in the state of Missouri. Troubled State is a new resource for library collections, historians, and Civil War buffs. Gari Carter was given her great-great-grandfather's journals from the Civil War era and spent years deciphering his handwriting and researching his life.
