Leetown Site

 

The Battle of Pea Ridge began in the fields and meadows outside the small hamlet of Leetown, on March 7th, 1862.  No trace of the remains of Leetown have been found, but a marker at this stop shows where the town would have been located.  During and after the battle, Leetown became a large hospital for both the Union and Confederate wounded soldiers.
