Title''A Stirring Effect on the Enemy'': Civil War Archaeology of Sharp's Cornfield at the 1861 Battle of Wilson's Creek, Missouri
AbstractWilson's Creek National Battlefield is located near Republic, Missouri, in the southwest part of Missouri around 15 miles from Springfield. "The battle was commemorated when Congress passed a joint resolution on December 24, 1861; and Wilson's Creek was only one of six battles to receive this distinction during the war." This article includes sections entitled "The Battle" which gives unit organization; "2001 Archaeological Inventory" which focuses on the south end of the battlefield; and "The Physical Evidence of the Fight in Sharp's Cornfield".
