Despite the arrival of reinforcements Sunday afternoon, the Union soldiers were overrun by the Confederate forces during the Battle of Sand Ridge, recreated at the Scott Matthews Farm, just south of Sikeston. Sikeston re-enactors were joined by Civil War enthusiasts from several states for the weekend event which also included a battle for the Sikeston Depot on Saturday and a church service on Sunday.
