Missouri and the Civil War

LEXINGTON, Mo. – Civil War buffs are fortunate that Tilton Davis didn’t believe in home repairs.

Davis, a lawyer, bought the Oliver Anderson house in Lexington after the war and preserved the home for 50 years. The stately mansion was a strategic part of the Battle of Lexington, changing hands three times on Sept. 18, 1861, the first day of the three-day fight.
