At Mine Creek in 1864 a large body of Union calvalry swept down on the rear of Confederate General Sterling Price's supply train that was returning south after a long raid through Missouri and Kansas. Today you can walk the battlefield guided by signage to indicate specific areas of interest. Walk the prairie loop and the timber loop trails, both guided by interpretive signage, and visit the newly-constructed visitor center which houses displays on the Battle at Mine Creek, the Price Campaign of 1864, and other aspects of the Civil War.
