On this site lie Confederate Soldiers who died in battle, February 13, 1863

The Confederate encampment here at Middle (or Muddy)Boggy Crossing on the Boggy Depot Road held by Lieut. Col. John Jumper's Seminole Battalion, Capt. Alan Nail's Company A of First Choctaw and Chickasaw Cavalry and a detachment of the Twentieth Texas Regiment was suddenly attacked by Federal forces - 3 companies of Fourteenth Kansas Cavalry, Maj. Charles Willets in command, and a section of howitzers under Capt. Solomon Kaufmann. The Confederates though poorly armed made a firm stand in a hot fight of 30 minutes, in which 47 of their men were killed and others wounded. Word of Confederate forces riding in from Boggy Depot (12 miles Southeast) caused a hurried retreat of the Federal troops toward Fort Gibson north.
