I went looking for the places that my great, great grandfather would have been during this battle. A young lady ranger at the welcome center found and pinpointed where he was each day of the battle. What a great experience.

Great place to go just for peace and quiet. We are tracing our family ancestory. Went here and cleaned some of ancestors graves. Took pictures. Calming place.

The park ranger was super helpful. I recommend watching the twenty minute movie that helps explain the time frame and battles that took place here more than 150 years ago. There is a national cemetery across the street. It is a relatively small national park...More
