Pacific, Mo Honors Civil War Battle

A Franklin County town is among the first in eastern Missouri to recognize its Civil War heritage.

A three-hour skirmish in Pacific in 1864 was the closest the Civil War came to St. Louis.

The recognition is part of a larger effort to market Missouri during the Civil War’s 150th anniversary.
