MINE CREEK BATTLEFIELD
The Battle of Mine Creek was a disastrous affair for Gen. Sterling Price's invading army. Fought in October of 1864, the battlefield is located just inside the Kansas / Missouri border. Though belated, the record has been set straight, however! The Kansas Division won a hard fought battle of it's own in April 2004 by placing a monument on the battlefield in honor of the Confederate soldiers who fell and are buried in unmarked graves.
