Missouri’s Civil War Trails is a comprehensive region-based marketing initiative, for which Missouri’s Civil War Heritage Foundation is the lead partner. The initiative draws on the example of successful Civil War travel programs in Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, West Virginia and Tennessee. Missouri’s Civil War Trails combines high quality regional maps with internet marketing and fulfillment services through a partnership with the national website CivilWarTraveler. Missouri’s Civil War Trails currently consists of the Gray Ghosts Trail™ and the U. S. Grant Trail™.
