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.

To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we submit the vindication of the Cause for which we fought; to your strength will be given the defense of the Confederate soldier's good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of those principles he loved and which made him glorious and which you also cherish. Remember, it is your duty to see that the true history of the South is presented to future generations."
Lt. General Stephen Dill Lee, Commander General, United Confederate Veterans, New Orleans, Louisiana, 1906
