BATTLE GROUND — Given Battle Ground’s recent population boom, it is perhaps not surprising that many newcomers — and probably some old-timers, too — don’t exactly know how the city got its name.

Local historian and researcher Don Higgins hopes his new book, “Peace Wins at the Battle Ground 1855,” not only answers that question but will educate readers about the region’s Native history.

Thank you for reading The Columbian.
