St. Charles Battle Monument & Marker

What to know

St. Charles is the site of the rebel batteries that fired "the deadliest shot of the Civil War" into the boiler of a Union gunboat, the Mound City, killing or injuring most of the crew. A large grain silo sits in this exact location, making it easy to find. An interpretive marker is located near the White River and there is a monument on Main Street to the Union sailors and Southern troops who died in that battle. Listed on the National Register for Historic Places (for monuments), it is the only one of its kind that is dedicated to both Union and Confederate soldiers
