Inscription. The Thos. Mockbee Farmhouse stood here. On Oct. 22, 1864 when, after the Confederates had forced a crossing of the Big Blue to the east 300 men of the 2nd Kas. Militia were north of the farmhouse where they formed a line facing north. Jackman's Brigade with Gordon's Regiment of Shelby's Div. made several mounted charges and finally overran the Union position. Union losses were 30 killed; 50 wounded; 102 captured including a 24-pound howitzer. Jackman also lost heavily in this fight.
