Stop 48—Shelby’s Last Stand

[Waypoint 39.002431 -94.574609]

This tour stop is a historical marker located just inside the entrance to Forest Hill Cemetery in Kansas City, Missouri. As the Confederates retreated south, Brig. Gen. Jo Shelby ordered Col. Sydney Jackman to deploy what was left of his brigade behind a stone wall near this location. They were able to stop the Federal pursuit.
