On August 10, 1861 the Battle of Wilson’s Creek, also known as the Battle of Oak Hills, was fought near Springfield, Missouri. This battle, the second major army battle of the Civil War (both won by Confederate forces) and the first west of the Mississippi, marked the beginning of four years of invading armies and ruthless guerilla warfare in a divided Missouri. Only Virginia and Tennessee saw more fighting. On Thursday, August 18, 2011, at 7:00 p.m., at the Town of DeWitt Community Room, 148 Sanders Creek Pkwy, E. Syr. (off NYS Thruway Exit 35 at Carrier Circle), the Onondaga County Civil War Round Table is continuing its observance of the Civil War Sesquicentennial with a showing of the documentary film August Light: Wilson’s Creek and the Battle for Missouri, by Wide Wake Films. The film viewing is free, along with popcorn and other refreshments, and open to the public. For additional information, please visit our website at, or contact Bill Goodwin at 315-437-3887.
