Two unidentified policemen. (1893-94) St. Louisans recently voted to return control of the police department to the city, thus ending 151 years of state oversight. When the Civil War started, Missouri governor Claiborne Jackson wanted control of the police in the hands of Confederate sympathizers like himself.
