Carthage Battlefield

The Battle of Carthage State Historic Site contains a quiet meadow and spring that made the area an encampment for both the Union and Confederate troops. Although surrounded by development, the immediate area is little changed in its appearance since 1861.  A small parking area with interpretive signage describes the battle there in the town. The Battle of Carthage Civil War Museum is downtown on Grant Street.
