Nathaniel Lyon, killed at the Battle of Wilson’s Creek, has the distinction of being the first general to die in the Civil War. He enjoyed a successful military career, which was marked by swift and bold moves. Lyon developed a fanatical and bitter hatred towards pro-slavery Missourians. On August 10, 1861, the first major Civil War engagement west of the Mississippi River raged at Wilson’s Creek, Missouri, involving about 5,400 Union troops and 12,000 Confederates. Outnumbered at the Battle of Wilson’s Creek, his Union forces were defeated. He was shot twice before falling mortally wounded from his horse.

Full borders, bright hand tinted colors. Appears to be in original frame 21 X 16 1/2 inches.
