The American Revolutionary War in the West

Visit the Heritage Museum at 1630 Heritage Landing St. Peters, MO 63303 to view the new exhibit, "The American Revolutionary War in the West," which has never been on display before. The exhibit features rare artifacts, original documents, uniforms, flags and interactive components that explore life in the Mississippi River Valley region during the American Revolutionary War and western contributions to the war. This exhibit gets its name from a new book by St. Louisan Stephen L. Kling Jr. His book and the exhibit focus on the war in the west, which has been largely ignored until recently. Other exhibits throughout the museum delve into the history of St. Charles County during the Colonial era and the War of 1812. Click HERE for more information.
