Lone Jack Civil War Battlefield, Museum and Soldiers' Cemetery

A complete Civil War on the Border experience awaits you at this museum with exhibits and vivid dioramas that bring new insights on Missouri's greatest conflict.

This site represents the impact of the Civil War on this nation’s citizens as it exemplifies the national conflict as well as the deprivations and terror civilians in the Border Counties endured as renegade bands of guerrillas and irregular Union troops preyed on them.

From 1854, when the Border War started, the raids continued throughout the war years. The constant threat from the numerous skirmishes, the spying of neighbor against neighbor, the irregular practices of draft enforcement and the depredations of the war set a true example of the war of brother against brother. This battle is indicative of the fratricidal nature of the Civil War in Missouri.
