Ted Hillmer, Jr.,


"The Battle of Wilson's Creek"


In the early morning hours of August 10, 1861, the rolling hillsides of southwest Missouri echoed with the sounds of fierce combat. When the smoke cleared, almost 2,500 men were killed, wounded, or missing.  The Battle of Wilson’s Creek, the second major battle of the Civil War and the first west of the Mississippi, marked the beginning of four years of invading armies and ruthless guerilla warfare in Missouri.


The talk will center on the activities within the battlefield and a presentation of the 100th Anniversary of the National Park Service.

 

Ted Hillmer, a federal government employee for 38 years with the US National Park Service, is presently Superintendent for Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield located in Republic, Missouri.
