Few People Realize That A Civil War Battle Was Fought In Iowa… By Accident

Here’s something you might not have realized that you can do in Iowa – visit a Civil War Battlefield! That’s right, the site of the northernmost Civil War battle west of the Mississippi is right here at Croton, Iowa. 

Today, the granite memorial marks the site at Croton. To learn more about this park, visit the Lee County parks website here. Take a picnic (maybe from Dr. Getwell’s in Keokuk) to the shelter house and honor our brave Iowa citizens and Civil War soldiers.

Address: Croton, IA 52626, USA
