JEFFERSON CITY- To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, Jefferson City put on a tour of historic homes and cemeteries in the area from the Civil War period on Sunday.

At the National Cemetary, Historian Mark Schreiber and a President Abraham Lincoln impersonator guided visitors among the graves of the fallen from the War Between the States.

Four homes were on the tour that people could drive by an admire. One of the homes is Parson's House, 105 Jackson St., which is the oldest home. People were also able to walk through six homes, such as the Marmaduke House and the Dulle/Vogel House.

The Dulle/Vogel house at 800 St. Mary's Boulevard was the headquarters of General John C. Fremont while he was the Commander of Jefferson City. This is also the childhood home of the State Senator Carl Vogel. Next to the Dulle house was one of the forts guarding the western approaches to the Capitol of Camp Lilly, named for Fremont's daughter.

Starting late Saturday afternoon, there was a Union encampment next to the Dulle's house. Re-enactors pitched tents and had a fire pit for cooking. In the tents they displayed muskets, items, and materials that the Union would carry. They also showed artifacts found in Mid Missouri from the Civil War.
