Missouri's Union Provost Marshal Papers
Click HERE to View History of Provost Marshal

Records of the Provost Marshal
The Provost Marshal Papers for the state of Missouri are part of Record Group 109, War Department Collection of Confederate Records in the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). Although they are records of the Union Army, they were associated with Confederate records in the War Department because they relate, in part, to Confederate citizens and sympathizers. The National Archives refers to this collection as Union Provost Marshals’ File of Papers Relating to Individual Citizens. This national collection is three hundred rolls of microfilmed documents, 1861-1866. The online database created by the Missouri State Archives is an index of the Missouri portion of the collection. There are similar documents that refer to more than one citizen, Union Provost Marshals’ File of Papers Relating to Two or More Civilians – this latter collection, however, is not represented in the Missouri State Archives index but is available for research at the Missouri State Archives.

The microfilm collection contains thousands of pages of documents detailing the way the provost marshal affected the lives of Missouri citizens who came into contact with the Union Army. The office of provost marshal generated much paperwork which offers a unique look at a state divided in loyalty and beliefs, and the war society that resulted. Far from being solely a resource for military research, the provost marshal papers provide information about the role of women during the war, its effect on Missouri’s slavery institution, and the difficulties experienced by war refugees.

The documents on film include correspondence, provost marshal court papers, orders, passes, paroles, oaths of allegiance to the United States, transportation permits, and claims for compensation for property used or destroyed by military forces. Charges could be initiated by anyone, civilian or military. Statements by accusers or witnesses were taken down as evidence; citizens could be arrested, however, simply on suspicion.

Provost Marshal Database Index Project
The Missouri State Archives database index is an ongoing project that began in 2000. Volunteers and student interns extract discrete information, such as name and subject matter, from a review of microfilm with the goal of creating a finding aid for the Missouri portion of the document collection. Currently, the database index represents work in 170 of the 300 rolls. It is estimated that over 40,000 documents relating to Missouri exist within the national collection. This represents a virtually unknown manuscript collection detailing the national experience in the trans-Mississippi West. Provost Marshal records contains thousands of pages of documents detailing the way the provost marshal affected the lives of Missouri citizens who came into contact with the Union Army.

The database index below for St. Francois County provides a microfilm reel number where researchers can locate the original record. Views of the records are not available online at this time.  For information about obtaining copies of the records from microfilm, please contact the Missouri State Archives Reference Room at 573-751-3280, and refer to "Reel Number" below in last column of document you're interested in receiving a copy of.

Click HERE to read  the "The Confession of Sam Hildebrand", originally published in 1870, and now out of print.  Sam Hildebrand was a  notorious Southeast Missouri outlaw and bushwhacker, born and reared in St. Francois County, whose exploits during the Civil War and afterwards, give a unique view of that restless period in our history when opposing beliefs in this border state set neighbor against neighbor and brother against brother in mortal combat.
