This is the first and only recorded history of the Missouri Confederate Home Cemetery (part of Confederate Memorial State Historic Site). There is also a discussion of the recent controversial removal of the Confederate battle flag in 2003. In addition, the author discusses options concerning the flag issue from a historic preservation viewpoint. It also contains the latest research findings concerning veterans with two graves, empty graves, conflicting records, "rediscovered veterans," and information on women and children. There is also a chapter dedicated to the possibility of identifying the "Unknown" soldiers buried there. The last chapter presents the interesting problems that occur when comparing all of the previously known graves registers. Finally, historic maps and photos orient the reader to the cemetery and the Home surroundings.
