In memory of the Union soldiers
who gave their lives in battles and
skirmishes in the Springfield area,
and those who died of wounds and
disease in the city's hospitals during
the Civil War, 1861-1865. When their
country called, U.S. Regular Army
troops and volunteers from Missouri,
Iowa, Kansas, Illinois, Arkansas,
Indiana, Ohio, Colorado and
Wisconsin bravely marched to battle
in southwest Missouri and northwest
Arkansas. Many made the ultimate
sacrifice to preserve the Union and
end the institution of slavery.
Hundreds of these soldiers now
rest in the hallowed ground of
the Springfield National Cemetery.
Some are unknown, except to God.
May the people of the United States
never forget these men and their
belief that a united country was
more precious than life itself.

During the Civil War, Union soldiers
battled organized Confederate armies
and partisan bands for control of
southwest Missouri and northwest
Arkansas. Facing superior numbers
of the enemy, Union troops suffered
defeat at Carthage (July 5, 1861) and
Wilson's Creek (August 10, 1861), but
finally secured Springfield on
February 13, 1862. Using the city as
a supply base, Union commanders
launched campaigns to prevent
Confederate forces from reoccupying
the region. On January 8, 1863,
Union units led by General E.B.
Brown heroically repulsed an
attack on the city by Confederates
under General John S. Marmaduke.
Springfield remained in Union hands for the remainder of the war.
Erected in 2003 by Phelps Camp
No. 66, Department of Missouri,
Sons of Union Veterans of the
Civil War.
