The Crew checks out Prairie Grove Battlefield

The Crew had a chance to check out one of America's most intact Civil War Battlefields located in Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park.  This was the location of the last major Civil War engagement in Northwest Arkansas on December 7th 1862. This battle between the Confederate Army of the Trans-Mississippi and Union Army of the Frontier resulted in 2,700 casualties.  We had a chance to chat with couple of the park rangers overseeing the park.  Check out their interviews below.
