WILSON’S CREEK NATIONAL BATTLEFIELD
ANNOUNCES STERLING PRICE EXHIBIT
A new temporary exhibit on Confederate Major General Sterling Price opens today at the Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield visitor center to commemorate the 150th anniversary of his death. The exhibit will be available for public viewing from September 13, 2017 through December 31, 2017.

Highlighting the exhibit are several items on loan from the American Civil War Museum in Richmond, Virginia. These include a presentation sword given to Price from the ladies of New Orleans in 1862, a pair of binoculars, eyeglasses, snuffbox, and a medallion. Price’s Colt Dragoon revolver and two letters are also on loan from Pamplin Historical Park in Petersburg, Virginia. Another Colt revolver is on loan from the general’s descendants. Other Price-related artifacts from the park’s collection will be on display as well.

Major General Sterling Price commanded the Missouri State Guard, a pro-Southern militia unit that fought in the Battle of Wilson’s Creek on August 10, 1861. Price went on to lead Confederate troops in many other battles during the war.
