The Skirmish at Klepper’s Sawmill took place in Boone County. Confederates under one Colonel Woodson and Colonel John F. Hill of W. H. Brookss command were in camp when attacked by Lieutenant Colonel Richard H. White of the Third Wisconsin Cavalry. Union howitzers shelled the camp and then followed with a Union cavalry charge. The dark night helped conceal the Confederates escape.
