Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Wilson's Creek, battle of. (search)
s played, but the last time without success. The belligerents were fighting desperately after Lyon's death. The Union column stood firm a long time against an overwhelming force. At length it began to bend, when Captain Granger dashed forward with portions of Kansas, Iowa, and Missouri regiments, supported by Dubois's battery, and smote the Confederates so fearfully that they fled from the field in broken masses to the shelter of the woods. The battle ended, and the Confederates held the field. The Nationals fell back to Springfield, and at 3 A. M. the next day, under the general command of Colonel Sigel, the entire Union force began a successful retreat, in good order, to Rolla, 125 miles distant, safely conducting a government train 5 miles in length and valued at $1,500,000. The Confederates did not follow. The battle of Wilson's Creek had ended after raging five hours. It was very sanguinary. The Nationals lost between 1,200 and 1,300 men, and the Confederates about 3,000.
