For 11 years, astride the Missouri-Kansas border, Cass County endured the vortex of our nation's most violent confl ict.

Violent circumstances forged leaders who shaped Missouri's political and military history. Caught Between Three Fires, for the fi rst time, reconstructs a lost history, erased by total destruction, Order No. 11, and time's purposeful neglect.
