How to Get Your Certification of Completion

  1. Purchase an official Civil War Missouri Passport Book, available at some stamp sites (see list) or from, which will add cost of shipping.
  2. Visit each site listed in the Passport Book’s Table of Contents and have that site’s block in the back of your book stamped with the official stamp for that site.

NOTE:  At the two National Park Service sites, Wilson’s Creek and Pea Ridge, they will use the National Park Service Official Stamps available in the Visitor Center.

  1. If you visit a site and find the stamp site office closed, take a selfie or photo of yourself next to a sign, entrance, or marker at that site to confirm your visit.
  2. Once you have a stamp from each site in your passport book or a selfie/photo, you are eligible for a Certificate of Completion, signed by Missouri’s Lt. Gov. Mike Kehoe and Col. Jerry R. Fry (USA, Ret.), founder of Fry’s Lyon Foundation, Inc.
  3. To receive your Certificate of Completion, email scans or photos of the completed stamp pages from the back of your passport book, along with any selfies/photos, to mopassport2021 at gmail dot com.
  4. Please put in the email the date you received your last stamp. This is the date you completed the program and will be put on the certificate.

Once the required proof is received, a signed Certificate of Completion will be mailed out to you within two weeks.
