      Does anyone know the date Lincolon sent John C. Fremont to St.
      Louis, MO. St. Louis had a lot of pro Sountern feelings and the
      arsenal was almost captured by pro southern sympathizers. Lincoln
      realized how important St. Louis was and sent Fremont to keep it in
      Union hands.

      Fremont arrived July 25th 1861. As far as it goes, the story of what was done to keep Missouri in the Union was a series of events that took place before this.

        You can check out the below [message 25556] for a snynopsis. It's the
        story of Lyon and Blair taking action, for the most part. Fremont came
        after the early events and pretty much tried to bore the Rebels into
        surrendering. Grant had a story about him sitting in his office in St
        Louis plotting this and that; Grant and other generals would be called
        in to observe grand plans to advance to New Orleans or whatever. "When
        you went in, he would point out one line or another in a mysterious
        manner, never asking you to take a seat. You left without the least
        idea what he wanted you to do. "
