Cape Girardeau County

March 22, 2022

This week we were in one of the original five counties, Cape Girardeau County  We had a great visit with Judge Stephen Limbaugh, former Lt. Governor Peter Kinder, Cape Girardeau County Presiding Commissioner Clint Tracy, and Farm Bureau President Laura Nothdurf talk all things Cape County.

From Louis Lorimier to Cape Rock to the civil war argument between Generals Ulysses Grant and another general over who was in control of the army in Cape Girardeau. One general went to St. Louis to ask who was in charge, and the other took command and took the army to Vicksburg and later became president.

Enjoy this week’s edition of Show Me Missourah on the history of Cape Girardeau County.
