Fought on August 16, 1862, the battle at Lone Jack was, by all accounts, the site of the bloodiest battle fought on Missouri soil. The battle, a Confederate victory, left 270 dead, most of whom were buried on the battlefield in two 80-foot long trenches. Recently, a third trench was discovered where at least 18 men who died of wounds are buried. The site also hosts the only Civil War Museum in Jackson County, Missouri. It is managed by the Lone Jack Historical Society
