Prairie De Ann Battlefield

Prairie De Ann Battlefield

Region: Timberlands

County: Nevada

The Prairie De Ann Battlefield northwest of Interstate 30 at Prescott was the scene of heavy skirmishes April 9-12, 1864, as Southern soldiers sought to blunt the Union drive toward the Red River. Though the Confederates thought the Federal objective was their capital at Washington in Hempstead County, the Northern troops instead headed for Camden. The Prairie DeAnn battlefield is all private property. Most of it is pasture land, looking much as it would have in 1864. It is interpreted at the Depot Museum in Prescott.
