(HISTORICAL) -- BATTLE OF BOONVILLE, June 17, 1861-- In his plan to conquer "Little Dixie" (the stretch of pro-Southern counties along the Missouri River in the west-central part of the state)), Federal General Nathaniel Lyon utilized river steamboats to transport his small army swiftly up the Missouri River to defeat the Missouri State Guard. Landing just east of Boonville, Lyon, assisted by an armed steamer, quickly defeated state forces under Governor Claiborne Fox Jackson and MSG Col. John S. Marmaduke. The capture of Camp Bacon and the make-shift arsenal outside the town dealt a serious blow to pro-Secessionist morale in the state. Though small in size by later-war standards, Boonville was a very important battle in that it forced the Missouri State Guard to abandon Little Dixie ---its most important center of supply and recruitment--- and secured the river line for the Federals. Thousands of potential militia recruits were stranded on the north side of the river, to be dispersed by Federal forces at a later date.
