How To Fight a War

Iowa and Missouri had a huge dispute over where the border was located, leading to the Honey War.

"When Missouri mustered 600 militia men, their trip to Iowa was fruitless. There was not yet an Iowa militia organized to fight. Eventually when about 1,200 Iowans lined up with pitchforks, the Missouri militia had already gone home."

When everyone did finally get together to fight, they drank lots of whiskey together and not much got done.   Then the Supreme Court made a decision and everyone went home.  The end.

I know you desperately want to see the everlasting memorial to this great conflict.  Here ya go.
