The battle of Pea Ridge






One of the places that we visited while on vacation. A lot of open space here and lots of canons.


The Battle of Pea Ridge
On March 7 & 8, 1862, 26,000 soldiers fought here to decide the fate of Missouri. The 4,300-acre park honors those who fought for their way of life. Pea Ridge was one of the most pivotal Civil War battles, and is the most intact Civil War battlefield in the country.
