Pea ridge National Military Park

I’m Jeremy Shreckhise, KSMU’s photographer and graphic designer. Since I was a child, I’ve had a love for history. Some of my fondest memories are of family trips to museums and historical sites. The rich history of the American Civil War is particularly interesting to me. Over 5000 battles were fought in 23 states between 1861 and 1865. The National Parks Conservation Association lists 76 battlefields, historic sites and monuments pertaining to this great conflict. Two of those locations are right here in the Ozarks, Wilson's Creek National Battlefield and Pea Ridge National Military Park.
