Description of the Artwork.
Confederate invasions of Kansas were feared and rumored throughout the war. But fear was intense in the fall of 1864 when General Sterling Price led his army to the state’s doorstep near Kansas City. With the help of several Kansas militia units, the Union army defeated the rebel force on the Big Blue River and Price had to retreat south along the Missouri border. Result: Union victory.
