A State Divided — A Missouri Symphony

The documentary series “The Civil War- St. Louis” will take a look at what it was like to live in a Union-controlled city located in a state with Confederate leanings. In the mid-1800’s Missouri was populated by states’ rights supporters who supported slavery, as well as abolitionist German immigrants. The 12-part series explores places in and around St. Louis where Civil War events unfolded.

Skirmish at Island Mound is the second movement of an original symphony created and composed by Dr. Barbara Harbach. A State Divided — A Missouri Symphony was created for the October 27, 2012 dedication of Battle of Island Mound. Narrated by Dr. Louis Gerteis and performed by the University Orchestra, conducted by Robert Charles Howard.
