" At 4:00 pm General Blunt with his 1st Division arrived commencing an attack upon the enemy, opening with his entire batteries. If the conflict had raged before with fury it was now terrific & until dark the battle raged with all its terror with scarce a moments cessation. But as the dusky eve throws over the scene its mournful mantle as if by common consent each side rests from the work of death." - Lieutenant Benjamin F. McIntyre, Co. A, 19th Iowa Infantry, U.S.A. - Prairie Grove, Arkansas, Battlefield, December 7th, 1862, - From his published diary, "Federals On The Frontier," edited by Nannie M. Tilley.
