Pea Ridge National Military Park

Keep your face always toward the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.

– Walt Whitman

Pea Ridge Military ParkArtists like Winslow Homer and Thomas Nast created prints and paintings capturing the images and stories of the American Civil War. The Battle of Pea Ridge was one of the most pivotal in the war. Close to 23,000 soldiers fought in March of 1862. Today, Pea Ridge National Military Park is one of the most intact Civil War battlefields in the country.

Pea Ridge Visitors Center contains a museum, temporary exhibits, and an orientation film explaining the battle. Browse an extensive collection of related books in the bookstore and even read letters and notes from the soldiers who fought here. Drive or hike the seven mile self-guided tour road and visit 28 interpretative exhibits or ride the nine miles of horse trails. For more information visit the Pea Ridge National Military Park National Parks website.

The area near the Elkhorn Tavern in Pea Ridge is also part of the Trail of Tears. Learn more about the nearby Trail of Tears point at Blue Spring Heritage Center.
