Battle of Mine Creek, Kansas

Here’s a short article on a little know and neglected battle in the Civil War. Mine Creek is less than 90mins south of Kansas City. The site is almost completely intact and worth a visit. While there visit Ft Scott, KS. just a few miles further south. Also worth a stop. One of it’s hero’s would be heard from again 22 years later at The Little Big Horn. This time in a different light.
