Five Civilized Tribes at the Battle of Honey Springs

On July 17, 1863, two armies clashed at the climactic Battle Of Honey Springs. The battle was fought on Indian land for Indian Territory and with the sacrifice of much Indian blood. One one side was a Federal Army of approximately 3000 men; facing them was 5000 Confederates. Although confronted by superior numbers, the Federal Forces had a clear advantage in artillery, rifles and supplies. The Confederate Forces had poor ammunition and few artillery pieces. When the smoke had cleared the Federal Forces held the field.
