Mine Creek Battlefield

Battle of the Osage

The story of "The Battle of the Osage" comes alive at Mine Creek Civil War Battlefield State Historic Site just south of Pleasanton. The visitor center tells the story of the Civil War in the West and the significance of the Battle of Mine Creek. A bank of windows that overlooks the battlefield allows visitors to contemplate the events of October 25, 1864, or simply catch a glimpse of wildlife. A 2.6 mile self-guided historic and nature trail marked with waysides interprets the battle.  The annual Heritage Day at the site features cavalry, artillery, and infantry Civil War period demonstrations. In addition to the preserved area at the state site, the Trust has preserved some of the battlefield east of Scott Road.
