Battle at Mine Creek--Linn County
Although Kansas soldiers saw action in many important
engagements of the Civil War, the only major battle fought in
Kansas occurred at Mine Creek in Linn County on October 25, 1864.
This battle involved some 25,000 men. The Union Army under
Generals Curtis, Blunt, and Pleasanton defeated the Confederate
Army under Generals Sterling Price and Marmaduke, ending the
threat of a Confederate invasion in Kansas.
