Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield, Missouri

Sally and I drove to her folks’ house in Arkansas. We took a different route so we could see Meramec Caverns and spent a night in Springfield, Missouri. I saw that Wilson’s Creek battlefield was nearby, so we decided to stop by.

The visitor center was very interesting. They had a topographical map on which the battle was replayed with lights indicating troop movements and batteries. We drove around the battlefield on the tour road. It was 95 degrees out, so we only got out of the car once — at the Ray House. This is the only building still standing that was there at the time of the battle.

Back on the road, just south of the battlefield, we came upon this giant can of Pepsi. The bottom of the can says “3,246,080 fluid ounces.”
