Many irreplaceable Confederate officers were also either killed or
captured. Others escaped by hiding in the brush, while others were shot
or recaptured during their attempts to escape. Lt. Colonel Lazear, 1st
Cavalry Regiment, MSM, indicated a total of 600 prisoners taken,
including 71 teamsters and male refugees. The march back through the
battlefield was a terrible experience for the prisoners, their comrades
laying on the field dead and the cries of agony coming from the wounded.
During the previous weeks of the campaign, many Confederates had
begun to wear captured Union uniforms. Elements of the Union army
had been under orders, while fighting Confederate guerrillas, to shoot
any such captives found to be wearing Union uniforms. Accordingly,
some captured Confederates were shot because they were wearing such
uniforms, while others undoubtedly escaped because of the same.
The prisoners were marched to Fort Scott the following day, a distance
of 26 miles. They were then taken to Warrensburg, Missouri where they
were loaded into railroad cars and taken to St. Louis and prison. Officers
were sent to Johnson’s Island, Ohio. Enlisted men went to Camp
Douglas, and Rock Island, Illinois.

Civil War battlefield and museum.
At Mine Creek in 1864 a large body of Union calvalry swept down on the rear of Confederate General Sterling Price's supply train that was returning south after a long raid through Missouri and Kansas. Today you can walk the battlefield guided by signage to indicate specific areas of interest. Walk the prairie loop and the timber loop trails, both guided by interpretive signage, and visit the newly-constructed visitor center which houses displays on the Battle at Mine Creek, the Price Campaign of 1864, and other aspects of the Civil War.
