  • Lovely site. Well-maintained, informative. There is a museum, the Anderson House directly behind that, and the battlefield itself. The Anderson House is beautiful, and you can still see places around the windows where bullets hit.
  • I worked here for a summer internship and loved it. I still go back and visit because it is beautiful and everyone is so friendly. Janae is one of the most wonderful people I've ever met, and definitely the best boss I've ever had!
  • Interesting historical site of Missouri and the "Civil War." The Anderson home is a beautiful, and solid house from the 1850's
  • The actual site with an awesome complex to come and see.
