Wilson's Creek National Battlefield is 1,750 acres of rolling Missouri prairie interrupted by a medium size stream.For many visitors this is a sacred place to reflect on the Civil War and its fallen heroes. For many others, however, it seems to be a convenient park for recreational horseback riding, jogging and dog walking. The battlefield is becoming enveloped by Springfield suburbs.
The visitor center displays interesting artifacts from the battle, sells books and other items, and is staffed by knowledgeable people from the National Park Service.Admission is $5 per vehicle. Numerous interpretive displays located across the battlefield help recreate scene and tell the story of the battle.great place for evereyone it is increadible to see the things they have.

This is for the history buffs, especially those who are into the Civil War and the battles fought during that time.

Fought on August 10, 1861, the Battle of Wilsons Creek was the second battle of the Civil War. It was a five hour battle and many on both sides died here. The visitor center has a film, a museum and exhibits. You can explore the battlefield on your own as it's a self-guided tour. You can also see various battle sites, including Bloody Hill and the John Ray house.

There is a small admission charge.
