Volunteers, donors sought for Civil War re-enactment at Lake
Monday, January 30, 2012
On Oct. 30, 2010, Lake area historian John Wilson’s three-year effort in getting the Civil War fight, the Battle at Monday’s Hollow, proper dedication and recognition came to fruition.
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.
