On August 10, 1861 at Wilson’s Creek (also called Oak Hills or Springfield) in Southwest Missouri, Union forces under Nathaniel Lyon were badly beaten just south of Springfield by Confederates Benjamin McCulloch and Sterling Price.

Nathaniel Lyon and Franz Sigel formulated a split attack against a much larger Confederate force a dozen miles south of their position in Springfield, MO.  Initially surprised, the Confederates reformed and launched a counterattack.  With the death of Lyon and the retreat of the southern wing of the attack by Sigel, Samuel Sturgis assumed commanded and ordered a retreat back to Springfield.  McCulloch and Price had won a stunning victory for the Confederate cause in Missouri.
