The epaulettes and waist sash of Union brigadier general Samuel R. Curtis are on temporary display in the museum at Pea Ridge National Military Park. These uniform items would have been in the possession of General Curtis during the Pea Ridge campaign and are on display with the frock coat Curtis wore during the Battle of Pea Ridge. This display is made possible thanks to a generous loan from the Union Pacific Railroad Museum in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Visitors may view these items during normal visitor center operating hours 8:30AM-4:30PM seven days a week.

Pea Ridge National Military Park preserves the site of and commemorates the March 1862 Civil War battle that helped Union forces gain control of Missouri.The park is located 10 miles north of Rogers on US Highway 62.
