History of the Battlefield

The Engagement at Honey Springs was the largest and most important of more than 107 documented hostile encounters in the Indian Territory. Cherokee and Creek regiments on both sides, as well as the 1st Kansas Colored Volunteers (the first black regiment in the Union army) fought in the engagement between the Army of the Frontier and the Confederate Indian Brigade on a rainy Friday, July 17, 1863. Periodic reenactments are held on the historic battle ground, with activities ranging from military drills to cooking demonstrations.
