The Battle of Camden Point took place on July 13, 1864 near Camden Point , USA.

During the mid-1864 Paw Paw Rebellion in north-western Missouri, detachments of Federal troops crossed the Missouri River and occupied Platte County. At this time a Confederate cavalry force approximately 200-300 strong under Colonel J.C. Thornton was organizing around Camden Point.

On July 13, Thornton's men held a picnic in an open pasture near the town. Detachments of the 2nd Colorado Volunteer Cavalry and 15th Kansas Cavalry ambushed Thornton's picnicking force, routing it and killing six and wounding approximately 25 Confederates, having suffered one killed and one wounded. Ammunition, weapons, and gunpowder were captured and Camden Point was burned.

The fallen soldiers were buried in a mass grave in the very spot they died on July 13th, 1864.
