I'm just wondering if anyone has ever come across these GAR ribbons for Carthage, MO? This is my first time seeing them and being someone from this area of Missouri I'm kind of fascinated. Thanks.

I haven't seen many, but I do know that Missouri was deeply divided during the war.  People from Missouri fought on both sides and there were G.A.R. posts in the South.

 

Check out the museum displays in St. Louis and Jefferson City.  I went a few years ago and I learned a lot about Missouri and the Civil War.

 

Thank you for sharing,

Kevin
