By the way, isn't it funny how Missouri gets first and foremost associated with Jesse James rather, and not with Mark Twain, Harry Truman or Lewis & Clark for example.
Littleknife, perhaps a discussion for another time off this board? Harry Truman was a man of the South. His grandmother was a Gregg and her son (Truman's uncle) fought for Upton Hays during the Border Wars and the Civil War that followed. Truman himself attended several of the reunions held by Quantrill's men (of which Frank & Jesse [under Wm Anderson] both fought) that were held from 1898 -1929.

On my side of the state feelings and hurt still run deep.
