Although the visitor center was closed for renovation when we visited, the battlefield was excellent. There are several cannon batteries overlooking the river, some nice monuments, and numerous earthworks. This is one of my favorite battles fields I've visited.
Awesome place to visit some of America's Civil War history. The fact that they made it a driving tour with the guided options through your phone is really cool. We were able to cruise around in the comfort of our car and get out where we wanted. Everything is very well maintained and easy to follow. Being able to get out and check the Cumberland River was awesome. Please be sure to go to the visitors center first before you start the tour. I think it may be the only way to get the phone number, map and see some pre-tour video. Highly recommend this!
