Wilson's Creek National Battlefield

Fought on August 10, 1861, the Battle of Wilson's Creek was a pivotal battle in Missouri and the second battle of the Civil War. When the smoke cleared, more than 2,300 Union and Confederate soldiers were killed or wounded in five hours of intense fighting. 

The visitor center features a 13-minute film, a museum and changing exhibits. A five-mile self-guided tour road allows visitors to explore the battlefield at their own pace. There is a very nice Civil War Museum that includes a large collection of artifacts from the war.
