Civil War in Fulton County

Fulton County men fought on both sides in

the Civil War, and some were arrested in

1861 as members of the Unionist Peace

Society. U.S. troops marched through in

April 1862 during the Pea Ridge Campaign.

Fulton County Confederates struck a Union

town in Missouri in 1863, and U.S. troops

raided the county at least three times that

year, including an August expedition in which

the Spring River Mill at modern-day Mammoth

Spring was burned as a guerrilla rendezvous.

On May 29, 1864, a wagon train of Unionist

refugees was hit at Salem. Eighty were killed.
