BlackJack Battlefield

Walk in their footsteps…Where the first shots of the Civil War rang out.

Originally known as Black Jack Springs campsite, this historic location became a popular stopping place for travelers along the Santa Fe Trail. John Brown began his armed war on slavery here in 1856, and so it became known as Black Jack Battlefield. Walking tours are available to see each destination involved in the historic battle.
