Civil War Battle Drum Creek Treaty

Kansas State Historical Marker
Montgomery County
      In May 1863, a mounted party of about twenty Confederates, nearly all commissioned officers, set out from Missouri to recruit troops in the West. Several miles east of here they were challenged by loyal Osage Indians. In a running fight two Confederates were killed and the others were surrounded on a gravel bar in the Verdigris River about three miles north of this marker.
