 Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Missouri at War

Local author Jeremy Paul Amick will be available to sign copies of book


The Show-Me State possesses an enduring military heritage that unfolded several decades before it became a state in 1821 and stretches forth to the present day. Missouri has molded many notable military leaders, such as Gen. John J. Pershing, the commander of the American Expeditionary Forces in World War I. It has been the site of a Spanish fort, built in the area that is now downtown St. Louis, and serves as the home of the Liberty Memorial in Kansas City. These people and memorials continue to generate reminders to its citizens of the sacrifices made by the brave men and women who have fought on behalf of the state and nation.


About the Author:

Found in this book are the postcards that demonstrate the military tradition of the state of Missouri and the people and events that represent the stories, which are woven together into the colorful tapestry that has become our shared history. Jeremy Paul Amick, a former Missouri National Guardsman and military historian/public affairs officer with the Silver Star Families of America, has selected postcards from his personal collection that illustrate the impact of war on the people of the state of Missouri.
