  • Be sure to start with the Visitors Center and watch the short video. Then, if you tend to be a bit lazy like me, take the driving tour. You will be impressed by the sheer size of the historical site. ...  more »
  • This place is very informative if somewhat broken up. It's a shame more of the structures and sites on the battlefield aren't in original condition. The hospital house is quite interesting  more »
  • The period actors were very knowledgeable about their character's role and the history of that time. They all were very approachable and eager to share about what they knew of various civil war battles. Costumes and activities were very realistic. The small gift shop had civil war replica toys for children such as Union and Confederate hats, muskets, fife, revolver. There was some food being sold but it was limited to drinks in cans and bottles. Better to bring your own food in portable containers as you will be walking around from one site to another.
  • Staff very friendly. Not well lift inside, but I shouted to see the movie and they happily played it. The trails aren't well marked, but the park was interesting and the site of the largest military surrender of the Civil War. If you're in the area check it out. It's about 20 minutes off 95.
