Missouri (Confederate), United States Civil War List of Missouri Civil War Confederate Units, or military units from the state of Missouri which fought for the Confederacy in the American Civil War.A border state with both southern and northern influences, Missouri attempted to remain neutral when the war began. However, this was unacceptable to the Federal government, and Union military forces moved against the capital to arrest the legislature and the governor.

Confederate Battle Flag
Governor Claiborne Jackson called out the Missouri State Guard to resist. Union forces under General Nathaniel Lyon seized the state capital, and a minority of pro-Union members of the legislature declared the governor removed from office. They appointed a pro-Union governor, and the Federal government recognized him even though he had not been elected. This resulted in a civil war within the state, as Missourians divided and joined both the Union and Confederate armies. Missouri sent representatives to the United States Congress and the Confederate States Congress, and was represented by a star on both flags.
