I wish I had known! I was in Boonville last week trying to hunt down what I could of the first battlefield/skirmish. Pat Jackson spent a lot of time putting together what she could so that I could find my way around.
I didn't find a detailed tour of 1st Boonville. From Pat's directions on a county map she provided I was able to get down to the river bottom and find the old stone marker along the Rocheport road where Lyon began to ascend the bluff. I'm a little fuzzy as to which piece of undulation the Adams house once rested. I was pretty sure I had the area of Camp Bacon/Vest worked out. I'm not sure what can be done since everything is in private ownership, but I hope that Friends of Boonville can put together some updated historical markers (with maps) and a driving tour before the 150 year anniversary. It really deserves the treatment. It would be great if there was a way to contact land owners and walk some of the key points.
I went down to the Historical Society in Pilot Grove after that and it was helpful as well.
Unfortunately, I'm living far out of state now so it could be years before I get another opportunity to visit Boonville. Next time I want to do it during leaf off so that I can see farther. Old photos show a lot of pasture with trees mainly in the creek bottoms, but like so many other similar areas the forest growth is considerable now.
