The Missouri Humanities Council (MHC) and the Kinder Institute on Constitutional Democracy have partnered to create a special traveling exhibit in honor of Missouri’s bicentennial of statehood. Struggle for Statehood traces the history of Missouri towards American statehood and explores why its application for admission sparked a national crisis that almost destroyed the very Union Missouri sought to join. Visitors will learn about the significance of the controversy and its lasting implications on our state and nation. Struggle for Statehood will be available for exhibition in Florissant at the James J. Eagan Center October 1 -30, with a trade show Sunday, October 4 and special information booths on Tuesday, October 20.
