A Day at Wilson's Creek National Battlefield in Battlefield Missouri

Looking into the past is an exciting part of our trip.  While spending time in southern Missouri, we decided to go to Wilson's Creek National Battlefield.  It was one of the largest battles in the beginning of the Civil War.  

This battle was the first major Civil War battle west of the Mississippi River.  It took place on August 10th, 1861.

Hundreds of men died here in a land that was torn between the north and the south.

The park has great walking, biking, and hiking trails.

Our family had a wonderful time there and can't wait to go back!
