In 1861, Americans questioned which states would join the secession movement and which would remain loyal to the Union. In Missouri, it was largely settled at Wilson's Creek, in a contest that is rightly considered the second major battle of the Civil War. Wilson's Creek provides the first in-depth narrative and analysis of this important but largely overlooked battle.
