Pea Ridge (2)

Here are some more photo from the Pea Ridge civil war battleground, Arkansas. Some of the worst slaughter in the battle took place in these rocks as they were shelled by the cannon. It very eerie standing here.
The Trail of Tears, where Native Americans were forced to walk as they were forcibly removed from their lands, passes through the site - many of them walked over this exact spot in the woods. It's hard to imagine what they were feeling.
The whole area was very beautiful.
