July 22, 2010
The American Legion Boys State of Missouri took place this year June 12-19th at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg, MO. 1,000 of the top high school students come together and build an entire government in the week they are there. Using their unique abilities and beliefs, the boys create a working political system which includes law enforcement, court systems, and all the other aspects of government.
