[from the back cover] "On 6-8 March 1862, one of the earliest pitched battles of the Civil War took place on a wintry field in northwestern Arkansas. The Federal victory at Pea Ridge dramatically altered the balance of power in the Trans-Mississippi, ensuring Union control of this vast, sparsely populated area. Based on exhaustive archival research, "Pea Ridge" offers a thorough account of this important encounter, one of the largest engagements fought on the western frontier."
