Located in the Byram's Ford Historic District of Kansas City, Missouri, the Byram's Ford Battlefield is in a light industrial area but has been preserved by Big Blue Battlefield Park green space. Some of the original entrenchments are still visible.  A self-guided walking tour with numerous monuments and markers is available from the Kansas City Parks and Recreation Department. A large Confederate monument in Forest Hill Cemetery is surrounded by graves of the Confederate dead, including Brig. Gen. Joseph Shelby's.
