Unionist Virginians meet, Kansas City ordnance seized

Wheeling, western Virginia
  • The people of western Virginia were not particularly in favor of Virginia’s secession. The mountainous region had social and cultural differences with the southern and eastern parts of the state. Virginians disloyal to their state meet today in the border areas with Pennsylvania and Ohio --  Wheeling, Kingwood, and Preston County to fight secession by seceding from Virginia./1861
  • The Missouri Volunteer Militia seizes the United States ordnance stores at Kansas City, Missouri./1861
