Well I guess I ain't been to near as many as some folks and not in order:
Arkansas:
Cane Hill, (Hands down my favorite battle and battlefield.)
Van Buren, (No battlefield surviving, but several small fights happened and I've been to where they were, or believed to have been.)
Old Washington, (Technically not a battlefield, but a site of less known big Arkansas State level stuff late in the war.)
Devall's Bluff
Fayetteville

Kentucky:
Perryville
Cadiz, (Pronounced Kay-deez by the locals, and site of small raids and burnings.)

Louisiana:
Mansfield
Pleasant Hill

Mississippi:
Vicksburg
Raymond
Corinth
Brice's Crossroads

Missouri:
Wilson's Creek/Oak Hills
Osceola, (Technically not a battle, but site of a major Union atrocity in Missouri early in the war.)
Marshall, (How many of y'all have heard of this one?)
Lexington

Oklahoma:
Middle Boggy in Atoka, Oklahoma
( http://www.civilwaralbum.com/atoka/battle.htm )

Tennessee:
Shiloh
Brownsville, (Look up the "Brownsville Raids.")
Trenton, (Small less known Forrest related fight.)
Fort Donelson

I have followed the travels of the 19th Ohio from Rich Mountain (West) Virginia to Indianola and San Antonio Texas. I am surprised no one has mentioned the Battle of Rich Mountain or any of the associated actions in the area early in the war; battles and actions that kept open the corridor between the east and the western theater. The Battle of Rich Mountain is recognized as the first battle between organized forces of both armies at the pink granite, block pool memorial at the Corinth Museum.

WV:

Harpers Ferry

McDowell
Believe it or not, even though it's pretty deep into the mountains McDowell is still in Virginia, as is Monterrey which is even farther west along that highway. However, only a little north of Monterrey the state line makes a jog and therefore puts the town of Franklin in West Virginia even though it's farther to the east than either of the others! (Following his victory at McDowell Jackson pursued Milroy and Schenk to Franklin where Fremont joined them.)

The road to McDowell battlefield is basically a one way drive but the scenery is beautiful. The battlefield itself is one of the toughest battlefield hikes I've ever made. I'm in pretty good shape and was worn out by the time I made it to the top.
