The Battle of Wilson’s Creek and the Fight for Missouri

While the Battle of Bull Run, also called the Battle on Manassas- the first major battle of the U.S. Civil War- is well known, the second major battle of the war is nearly forgotten. The Battle of Wilson's Creek was the first major battle of the war fought west of the Mississippi and represented the conflicted loyalties of the border states. The History Guy recalls a little remembered battle over control of Missouri.
