History

During the Civil War, both Confederate and Federal Troops made their headquarters within city limits. According to the city's website, at least one major battle took place in 1862 on the square when General Samuel Curtis' troops captured the Southern outpost here and replaced it with the Stars and Stripes. Mount Vernon stayed in Union hands until the conclusion of the war, and between 1861 and 1865, more than one hundred regiments camped or passed through the city.
