In June 1862, the Civil War Battle of Kirksville involved about 1,000 soldiers; with approximately 500 Union soldiers and 500 Confederate troops taking part.
It is unclear how many men were killed during three hours of fighting. Reports vary anywhere from five to 28 Union soldiers, and to between 35 and 100 Confederate soldiers. An unknown number of Confederate soldiers were executed following the battle.
The battle was seen as a victory for the Union; a marker in Forest Llewellyn Cemetery (four blocks west of Kirksville's square) was erected on the spot of a mass grave where local residents buried executed Confederates.
This circa 1870 cabin was relocated to the Madison County Historic District from its original location, which was in a flood plain, about five blocks away. The cabin belonged to one of the city of Fredericktown's founding families. The cabin is adjacent to the school house, which was constructed in 2002 using logs from an area home that dated to 1848. Students who tour the school house have the opportunity to write using a feather quill pen and a slate tablet.
You must call to arrange tours of the cabin and school house; the buildings are open during the Azalea Festival and the Madison County Fair.
These two log cabins were built in 1833 at Cline's Island. They were moved piece by piece to Bloomfield City Park in 1973.
