Once the Confederate forces had been for all practical purposes been driven out of SW Missouri following the
Battle of Pea Ridge in March, 1862, Springfield became a large military depot and a base for operations by Union
forces in SW Missouri. Several forts were planned, but only five were built, to protect the military stores.
Construction of the forts extended over a year or two. The earliest date making mention of fort construction was
August 26, 1862. Civilians were conscripted to work on the forts and soldiers were also assigned duty to work on
the forts. Some of the accounts of soldiers stationed in Springfield tell of how the soldiers disliked this duty and felt
that it was not in keeping with what they had in mind when they enlisted. After a soldier had put in ten days of
labor on the "works" as the forts were called, he was entitled to .25 per day extra pay. Twelve months work on the
forts without pay was the punishment for some offences. Nothing remains of these fortifications today but the
locations have been fairly well documented. Fort # 4 on South Street played the most significant of any of the four
as it bore the brunt of Marmaduke's attack on Springfield, January 8, 1863, also known as the Battle of Springfield.
