Bloody Hill - Wilson's Creek

This picture is the sight of the final Battle where the Union General Lyon perished. The Battle took place on August 10, 1861 lasting six hours and has often been referred as the "Bull Run of the West"


  1. looks so serene now...but those men are real one some things to think about...

  2. Thank you for this! I will have to do a little research on this battle....don't remember it.

  3. I did not know there were battles in Missouri. At least not west of the Tenn. border. I'll have to read about it.
