Well, to be honest, I never heard of it.
I would believe Missouri was more heavily settled at the time of the war and possibly more divided about the war.
I live in central Arkansas so what I would have heard of would have been around Little Rock.
I live at a small town 20 miles east of Little Rock and there was a big Union encampment within a mile of where my house is now. The railroad ended there so it was an important place for them.
I know my Price bunch nearly starved to death in what is now White County. A Union soldier came and told the widow that if he had so much money he could buy her sick husband out of the prison. She sold all she had to sell and then only after turning the money over to him found out she had been totally beaten out of her money as the man was already dead. Then during reconstruction the family lost their land because they did not have the money for the taxes.
I also know that on one of my other sides, one of my ancestors refused to sign a loyalty oath so he died flat broke in the 1870's. He said the war had cost him too much and he would not sign one. Since he would not sign one, he could not receive any money for what the Union army took, or stole depending on how you looked at it.
I also know that parts of the state were really rough with all kinds of bushwackers, etc. I do know that an elderly lady told me of how the Union soldiers burned her ggrandfather out in this area as he had spoken to a man who turned out to be a CSA spy. Her ancestor had no idea who the man was and only considered himself being polite by speaking.
Your sight was interesting to say the least.
