The Society of Colonial Wars in the State of Missouri was organized in St. Louis, 22 November 1894 .
In recent years, the Missouri Society has held a business luncheon meeting in early February, a Spring Court in May, and a formal Fall Court in November or December. Additional events are held at other times throughout the year, including periodically, a French & Indian Colonial Picnic at Strathalbyn Farms Club. This event has featured colonial food, a display of colonial medicine and a militia which ahs assisted members in firing muskets and cannon. Each year the Society contributes to organizations that promote education furthering the history of the coonial period. Examples include: The Missouri Historical Society, which maintains the Missouri Society's original application forms, and literature of the colonial period; and The Royal Regimet of Foote, a not-for-profit group that is committed to research and "living" the History of the colonial period.
The Missouri Society played host to the General Council Meetings of the General Society in 1962 and 1991. The Missouri Society has a number of new members who are contributing to our growth and enthusiastic commemoration of our forefathers who assisted in the establishment, defense, and preservation of the American colonies.
