About the author

Monika L. Burkhart

Monika L. Burkhart became fascinated by Missouri’s Civil War history, especial how it affected Saint Louis. She began researching this history through letters, journals and newspaper accounts at the Missouri Historical Society Library & Archives. Many of the documents were on microfilm. There were only a limited number of microfilm machines with copying, and she felt bad about dominating their use. Though a generous donation, company match and funds from the Missouri Historical Society another machine was bought. It is still in use today.

Her writings have been published in local and regional magazines. Other interests include graphic art and evocative wall decor photography. Many of her images are available though on-line retailers.
