Third defensive position above St. Francis River--On May 1-2, 1863, 5,000 Confederates led by General Marmaduke fought a Union force of 8,000 led by McNeil and Vandever. This spot was the final battle of Marmaduke's Missouri Invasion. The Confederates crossed the swollen St. Francis on a makeshift floating bridge.
