This historic battlefield's history is really presented well. Visitors walk around a multi-stop loop through where the fighting occurred. All along the way there are placards and diagrams explaining what happened. We really enjoyed the experience. The whole area was under about 7 feet of...More

I found this place interesting because I enjoy Civil War history. Additionally, it's a great place to walk and enjoy the outdoors. Several years ago, I attended their re-enactment which I also enjoyed. They also have an old barn their information says is used for...More

My cousin had her wedding here last weekend and it was wonderful! The only real problem we had was that it had rained so much and it was muddy, but it was absolutely beautiful. Would recommend this spot for a wedding....maybe if it isn't pouring...More

This is a civil war sight with not a lot to see. A field some small cabins and a few mounds that were built. You will need to imagine the rest! Nice little walk to enjoy and imagine what went on here!

Nice, well-kept battlefield. It is small but a lot to see for it's size including where the bridge was (and new one is), the monument and flag, interpretive markers, snake rail fencing and some breastworks. Worth a 30-60 minute visit.
