On January 22, 1864, 527 Union soldiers of the First and Second Arkansas Cavalry and Eighth Missouri State Militia Cavalry (U.S.), with one mountain howitzer, fought Col. A.R. Witt's Confederates in St. Joe. The Confederates fell back after an initial skirmish to take position on high ground above Tomahawk Creek. The Missouri militia opened fire as the Arkansas troopers hit the Confederates flank, driving them from the field. Two or three Confederates were killed and four were wounded. Two Union men were slightly wounded in the combat.
