Did you know that Missouri has alot of history?? Well let me just tell you some. Missouri became the twenty-fourth state in the United states on August 10, 1821. Did you know Missouri is 295 years old. In Missouri there is lots of history starting from 1821 to now. Every month every day somethings go down in history. Like the time when walt disney started in Missouri and today Royals made it into the world series and won it. But anyway did you know that there was a president that was from Missouri?? His name is Harry S Truman.“As for what he brought, it was assuredly his varied background and experiences from Missouri: growing up on a series of Missouri farms, living for a while in Independence and then for three years 1903 06 in Kansas City. Remembering his sudden rise to power and his prominent political role during World War II, people often forget that Truman served a remarkable political apprenticeship as well as a county judge and Senator before reaching the vice presidency in January 1945. These experiences shaped his character and prepared him for what, three months later, was to come.”
