(HISTORICAL) -- BATTLE OF CARTHAGE -- On July 5, 1861, the left wing of Lyon's two-pronged offensive, commanded by Colonel Franz Sigel, moved aggressively to intercept a Missouri State Guard column moving south to join Confederate forces. North of Carthage, Sigel found what he was looking for and he quickly realized he had bitten off more than he could chew. Heavily outnumbered, Sigel conducted a masterful fighting withdrawal across 3 creeks and the Spring River, finally passing through Carthage before night ended the action. Though they failed to destroy Sigel, the State Guard had cleared the way for a junction with Confederate forces and a day of destiny at Wilson's Creek.
