The Wilson's Creek Civil War Museum (Former Name : General Sweeney's Civil War Museum) has on display numerous artifacts and weapons of the war in the Trans-Mississippi, more familiarly known as the area west of the Mississippi River. The collection consists of several thousand artifacts that have been accumulated over the last 40 years. Several large displays tell the story of the battle of Wilson's Creek. View artifacts from this battle, along with weapons, a uniform, photographs of participants from both sides. For those interested in weapons, we offer a wide variety used by the infantry, cavalry and artillery, as well as the fresh water navy on the Mississippi and other inland rivers. Several display cases are devoted to medicine as it was practiced during the time. A number of flags are also displayed, including a rare Cherokee Indian Confederate Flag.
