Wilson's Creek National Battlefield

If you are a Civil War buff and would like to tour a battlefield not far from Branson, Wilson's Creek is located between Springfield and Republic, just off of Hwy 60.

"Wilson's Creek was the first major Civil War battle fought west of the Mississippi River, and the site of the death of Nathaniel Lyon, the first Union general killed in action. The costly Southern victory on August 10, 1861, focused national attention on the war in Missouri. Wilson’s Creek NB commemorates and interprets the battle within the context of the war in the Trans-Mississippi West."


Here's their website:

We have been there a number of times. The film shown before you go out to the field area is wonderful. It is a wonderful piece of history to help us remember the past that we might not forget. The Museum is very interesting as well.
