Isaac M. Riffe, an orderly sergeant in Co. A, 4th Missouri Infantry is wounded at the battle of Pea Ridge in Arkansas. Pea Ridge is an important battle in northwest Arkansas, close to the Missouri boarder, that ultimately served to ensure Federal control of the state of Missouri.
 The Battle of Pea Ridge was fought March 6-8, 1862. It is believed that Samuel O. McGuire also participated in the battle, but there is no conclusive proof.
