    Visitor Center: If You're Into Civil War Literature

    by mrclay2000 Written May 10, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The visitor center offers one of the sparsest collections of Civil War literature in the entire NP battlefield system, but if you want a book on the subject, this is as good a place as anywhere else. When I asked one of the locals for directions to "the battlefield," I had to say "Wilson's Creek" for him to understand me (which I took for proof that history is often lost on the present age).
