The Battle of Mill Springs was the first decisive Federal victory of the Civil War and the beginning of a series of Confederate setbacks in the Western Theater.

The site offers intact examples of a Civil War battlefield and related properties that were occupied at the time of the battle, as well as insight into the Confederate Army’s winter field camp. In 1991, the National Park Service put Mill Springs on its Most Endangered Battlefield List.
