TO THE LOYAL PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF MISSOURI [caption title]
[St. Louis? 1863].. 8pp. Dbd. Very minor soiling and wear. Very good. An apparently unrecorded pro-Union tract issued in St. Louis in the middle of the Civil War. The authors rejoice in the impending collapse of the Confederate presence in Missouri: "The Secessionists of Missouri are manifestly tired of the war, which, in a period of violent and unreasoning passion, they inaugurated against the peace of the State and their own pecuniary and social interests." But the author also views with alarm the activities of a "radical, revolutionary party," so vindictive toward Secessionists that they "urge that the military power shall continue to wage war upon these people, seize and take away their property, and cast them into prison or exile, or shoot or hang them." "Fellow- citizens, if this policy is continued, the war in Missouri will never cease." The pamphlet, signed in type by Samuel T. Glover and seven others, urges Missourians to "annihilate this fanatical faction" at the polls in the September elections. Not in OCLC and possibly the only surviving copy.
