Mexico’s Civil War History

On April 12, 2016, the City of Mexico in Audrain County, Missouri, dedicates the second and third of a series of educational panels that highlight Mexico’s Civil War history.  Mexico is an anchor in northeast Missouri for the U. S. Grant Trail, befitting its place in the history of Ulysses Grant’s early Civil War campaigns.  It was here, while Grant commanded several regiments of infantry from July 20 to August 7, 1861, that Grant learned he was appointed a brigadier general.  New panels commemorate Grant’s arrival and command in Mexico, and veterans of both sides who are buried in Elmwood Cemetery.
