Two American Civil War military engagements were fought at the Cabin Creek battlefield in the Cherokee Nation within Indian Territory. The location was where the Texas Road crossed Cabin Creek, near the present-day town of Big Cabin, Oklahoma. Both the First and Second Battles of Cabin Creek were launched by the Confederate Army to disrupt Union Army supply trains.Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Cabin Creek Battlefield by using our Big Cabin trip itinerary builder site.
The first was a raid by a Confederate Army detachment on a Union Army supply train bound for Fort Gibson in July 1863. It failed to stop the Union detachment, which enabled the Union to succeed in winning the Battle of Honey Springs later that month. The second engagement, in September, 1864, again a Confederate raid on a Union supply train, resulted in the Confederates capturing over a million dollars worth of mules, wagons and supplies. However, this was too late to have a strategic impact on the outcome of the war. Confederate General Stand Watie led the attackers during both raids.

Quiet and Peaceful. Little tricky to find. Sadly looks a little run down. Road to battlefield is a little rugged right at the entrance, not recommended for regular cars. Someone still posted US Flags at the markers for Memorial Day 2019. Rest In Peace
It was a cool place to go. It would be better if it was more built up like other battlefields, GPS took us to someone’s house at first, and the roads are very uneven and worrisome for some car owners.
