St. Charles Battle Monument & Marker
The site of the rebel batteries that fired "the deadliest shot of the Civil War" into the boiler of a Union gunboat, the Mound City, killing or injuring most of the crew. A large grain silo sits in this exact location, making it easy to find. An interpretive marker is located near the White River and there is a monument on Main Street to the Union sailors and Southern troops who died in that battle. Listed on the National Historic Registery for monuments; only one of its kind that is dedicated to both Union and Confederate soldiers
