"... tailgating at Mizzou is the best! But despite the beer, chips and somewhat superficial conversations at a tailgate, it is possible to find your one true love."
"I thoroughly enjoyed my time, as the entire unit was very helpful and willing to share their knowledge of re-enacting and the history itself. I also felt like I got to experience a bit of the reality that our ancestors experienced who fought in the war. It rained most of the weekend, and we slept in canvas tents with straw under our bedrolls and sleeping bags."

Occupy Mizzou demonstrated Oct. 13 at Speakers Circle to protest corporate influences on the U.S. government. In the videos, MU students describe their reasons for protesting and what the “99 percent” movement means to them.
