Just go back from my Labor Day weekend trip and had a great time.  I will shortly - tody or tomorrow - post some pics from the other stops, but here are a few from Wilson's Creek.

Wilsons Creek - photo taken from the modern bridge by Price's HQ.  The rebel army was camped for about 1 mile along this portion of the creek.



 

Reconstruction of Price's HQ.  Bloody Hill is in the background.  Wilsons Creek is to the left of the frame.



 

One of the few memorial's on the battlefield, the marker is claimed to actually be at the site of his wounding earlier in the day while with the 1st Iowa.



 

Sigel arrived on the high ground in the rear of the photo and to the South.  Placing his cannon on the ridge, he bombarded the rebel encampment then advanced to this position along the wire road.  On Monday, they had a cannon firing demonstration at this location.  I should be posting a movie file in the next couple of days.
