Description

On October 25, 1864, on the banks of Mine Creek, two Union brigades of approximately 2,500 troops defeated approximately 7,000 Confederates from General Sterling Price's Army of Missouri. Federal Colonels Frederick W. Benteen and John H. Philips led the attack in one of the largest cavalry battles of the Civil War and a major battle fought in Kansas. After this battle, Union forces continued their pursuit of Price's army into Missouri, Arkansas, and Indian Territory (Oklahoma) ending the Confederate threat to Kansas. Learn about the cavalrymen--their food, weapons, and clothing. Their dramatic story comes alive at Mine Creek Battlefield.
