Battle of Carthage State Historic Site


1111 East Chestnut Street
Carthage, MO 64836
United States

This 7.4-acre tract was the site of the final confrontation of the Battle of Carthage, a day-long running skirmish that began on July 5, 1861, some 9 miles northeast of Carthage. An interpretive shelter with displays explains the history of this early armed confrontation (it preceded the first Battle of Bull Run by seventeen days).
