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 major battle of the Civil War. More than 2,500 Union and Confederate soldiers were killed, wounded or declared missing during the five hours of intense fighting. The visitor center (ADA compliant) at Wilson's Creek National Battlefield features a 27-minute film, a museum and changing exhibits. A five-mile, self-guided driving tour allows visitors to explore the battlefield at their own pace.
