Description; In 1861 troops from Jefferson Barracks, led by General Nathaniel Lyon, participated in the "Camp Jackson Affair", which saved the St. Louis Arsenal from processionist state forces. In 1862, Jefferson Barracks was turned over to the Medical department of the U.S. Army and became one of the largest and most important Fedearl hospitals in the country. Sick and wounded soldiers were brought to Jefferson Barracks by riverboat and railroad car. In 1864
it became a concentration point for the defense of St.Louis during "Price's Raid", the last major Confederate invasion of Missouri. In 1866 a national cemetery was established.

Rest easy, sleep well my brothers.
Know the line has held, your job is done. 
Rest easy, sleep well. 
Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held. 
Peace, peace and farewell..
