Steve Ross is the Graphic Design and Marketing Coordinator for the Springfield Convention & Visitors Bureau, but he also does a lot of volunteer work for Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield. “The Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield Foundation does a calendar for Wilson’s Creek every year, so I’m always trying to get photos for the different seasons,” Ross says. He snapped this photo of the Edwards Cabin at the battlefield on a snowy February day.
