Union victory here March 7-8, 1862, ended any serious Confederate hopes of holding Missouri. Among the more than 25,000 soldiers engaged was a contingent of American Indians. The Confederate troop concentration at Pea Ridge (about 16,000) was the largest ever west of the Mississippi River. Following the battle, much of the Confederate force was moved east of the Mississippi River.
