We went to Pea Ridge first. The battles were about 9 months apart. Very interesting and beautiful grounds. Part of the tour is off site. You can walk to overlook so wear comfortable shoes. There was an event going on so we missed a few stops.

This site has it all done right. It was started with an initial donation of $100k given by the family of a Confederate Officer. Homes that were Central to the battle have been accurately reconstructed. The orchard remains. Both a driving and walking tour are available. A modern and engaging museum. Pleasant and friendly staff. There is a reenactment when other year, next one scheduled for December 2018. This sure also does a great job discussing Arkansas entry into the war and why so it is significant in educating beyond the Battle of Prarie Grove.

It is a battle site and a horrific one at that. Nice restorations of buildings. Staff was very knowledgeable and pleasant. She explained the trails and gave a history brief as we followed along on the brochures map of the trail we would be taking. Trail is paved and park well maintained.

The park is well constructed and maintained. The staff of the visitor center and museum were friendly and knowledgeable. I just mentioned my relative’s unit number and she was able to point on the map to where his unit fought. The battle was pivotal to the fight for control of Arkansas and Missouri. There is a self-guided walking tour and a CD narrated driving tour.

This is one of the most intact battlefields left in America from the civil war. 2700 lost their lives. There is a walking tour as well as a driving tour. On the driving tour you will see a marker for the Trail of Tears (a journey the indians made when forced to leave Arkansas). There are also actual structures that remain on the land. A small museum inside which gives the detailed story of this battle. A re-enactment of the battle takes place every other year the first week in December. I would highly recommend a visit to this hallowed ground.

Battlefield Park is a great place to visit. They have a play ground, walking trails,pavilions to have events and a museum to walk thru and learn the history of the park and the town of prairie grove. They also host several events each year, including clothes line fair and a haunted halloween trail

What an outstanding preservation of the American Civil War. Make sure you take a guided tour. So much information, so little time. Continue the walking tour and the driving tour. It was so good that we have to return
Not that far from Pea Ridge Battlefield.

Nice driving tour with an informative brochure available at the visitors center. Grounds are clean and well maintained. My only suggestion would be a few more directional signs for those of us that are directionally challenged.
