Default Research Overview (NEED HELP)

I am hesitant to trust my research because I am really new at this. I found some land near the battle of Prairie Battlefield, however I am not sure if I would find anything from the Civil War era. Can y'all take a look at my overlay and let me know if you think the are marked will have Civil War relics.

The red outline is the battlefield and the white outline is the property.

Looks like you are going to be around where the 40th IA was positioned. Hard to tell for sure where your property sits without a topographic to compare to this map. But its definitely around the right flank of the union Army or directly in their path of attack.

Edit: I believe I see the small lake on your photo. If it is the same lake, you are just off the far right flank. Should have still been some activity there.

Only one way to know for sure...get to swinging!
There's certainly enough of a chance there that I would check it out. Good luck.
