As I recall, Gen. Lyon was killed at Wilson's Creek Battelfield in Missouri. His death (or the events around it) were a significant turning point for the early war in the "west". The union secured Missouri which had been almost gone with the South. I grew up just a few miles from this historic site.

Thanks for sharing - I did not know about General Lyons. Nice capture of a pretty special gravestone.
