— Tour Stop C —

Moonlight's Union cavalry brigade, with five guns and 1000 men, was driven from the Little Blue River by Marmaduke's and Shelby's 5000 Confederates of Price's army. Moonlight stopped here and was joined by Jennison's and Ford's brigades of Blunt's division with 10 guns and 2000 men. A defensive line was formed running north and south for a mile. Charges and counterchargers continued until 2 PM, when Blunt withdrew. Ford fought a series of delaying actions back into Independence, pursued by Shelby's dismounted troops.

West on Hy. 24, left on Collete, left on Main to Stop D.
