I think we have already established that James and I love a road trip.  He also loves history and can take forever reading all the signs at road side stops.  I guess that's why when I got the email telling me about an actual battlefield in the state of Oklahoma. I knew it was the perfect road trip for us. I found it on TravelOK.com too!

Honey Springs Battlefield is located near Checotah,Oklahoma, also the home of Country's Carrie Underwood!  The Honey Springs Battlefield recently installed more than 50 new trail signs on all six of its walking trails. To reach the walking trails, take the modern, paved battlefield road from the Visitor Center. From the road, each walking trail is marked by title and numbered one through six from north to south, ending at the monuments area.

Honey Springs Battlefield is excited to announce that it will host guided trail walks on the Honey Springs Battlefield led by site director Adam Lynn on Saturday, September 19, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. This will be a great opportunity for visitors to check out the brand-new informative trail signs and to ask questions about key aspects of the largest Civil War conflict to take place in present-day Oklahoma. The guided tours will be limited to groups of eight, and all attendees will be required to wear masks and socially distance throughout the tour.

I found out by visiting TravelOK.com that they also have trip itineraries already mapped out for you whether you are looking for a romantic secluded retreat, or maybe visiting the top 10 attractions along Route 66.  You can use this handy tool to plan.  Maybe we will see you at the battlefield!
