Known as Dutch Hollow, Wet Glaize or Monday’s Hollow, this historic ground lies among area surrounding the Beulah Baptist Church in Richland. It is on this land where the Union Forces led by Col. John B. Wyman squelched an advance by the Confederate forces of Col. William W. Summers on Oct. 13, 1861. The conflict culminated in the loss of 62 Confederate soldiers and one Union soldier and was the only Civil War battle fought in Camden County.

That dedication, co-sponsored by the Camden County Historical Society and Missouri Civil War Heritage Foundation, was held at the church and included a formal burial ceremony to honor the confederate soldiers of the Battle of Monday Hollow.
