On Oct. 23, 1864, Confederate Gen. Shelby being forced back from Westport by Gen. Curtis and flanked on the east by Gen. Pleasonton formed a defensive line here behind stone fences running east and west to the state line. Jackman's Brigade of Shelby's Division arrived after 1 P.M. To defend the Confederate right flank. Shelby's "Iron Brigade" under Gen. Thompson was farther west. Generals Curtis and Pleasonton finally drove the Confederates south.

Go S.E. to the Confederate monument. Shelby and many of his men are buried here.
