Abstract : With secession sentiment running high in Missouri, the actions of a few key leaders become critical to the outcome. This paper follows their progress from the incipient phase following Lincoln's election as President to the effective end of secessionist resistance in the State. Their decisions and actions are discussed and analysed from the perspective of operational leadership.
