PEA RIDGE, Ark. (KNWA) — Confederate soldiers were out in full uniform in Benton County on Saturday demonstrating what the Civil War was like in our area.
The Pea Ridge Military Park put on artillery demonstrations and confederate infantry programs.
KNWA spoke with a demonstrator who has been a part of this re-enactment for over a decade.
She said it’s important to know the history behind our states’ involvement in the Civil War.
“We’re out here to preserve history and show people what our past was like and not to forget who fought and died here,” said Keiana McCoy, demonstrator.
The 4,300 acre battlefield is located 10 miles north of Rogers, just off US Highway 62.
