  • This is a very unique battle very early in the war (before Bull Run). A beautiful mural of the action by famous artist Andy Thomas greets the visitors as they enter the museum. A huge, fantastic diorama featuring hundreds of detailed miniatures is also a big attraction along with countless Civil War relics. Located just one block from the historic town square in Carthage.
  • Me and my good friend Kira had a phenomenal visit one of our favorite places in Carthage, Missouri today again. We were happy to have a one on one conversation with Steve Cottrell the author for Battle Of Carthage book. My friend Kira and I will keep visiting this location no matter what cause of all the rich History inside this Museum.
