Visit the site of the second major battle in the American Civil War.

Wilson's Creek National Battlefield is situated just south of Republic High School in Missouri. The battle at Wilson's Creek was where the first Union general was killed in action during the American Civil War. Even though it was a victory for the Confederate army, it also cost them dearly. Visitors to this battlefield can walk along the Tour Road beginning at 7 am (pedestrians and bikers only). Vehicles can begin driving on Tour Road at 8 am with the purchase of a gate token at the visitor center. Tour Road is almost 5 miles long and has 8 points of interest along the way. Along with the paved road, hikers and horseback riders can venture through 7 miles of trails around the battlefield.

This national historic site is open year-round. Explore the battlefield and learn more about what happened here at the visitor center. Inside the visitor center and museum, you will see rare artifacts such as General Lyon's death bed, an 1860 repeating rifle, and more. There are plenty of opportunities to observe the wildlife outside, such as white-tailed deer, mink, warblers, hawks, and others, making it a family-friendly attraction that all can enjoy.
