  • Excellent. Well worth the visit. A museum of the usual high standard expected from the NPS, a film (nominal charge), a very fine ranger-led 35- minute short tour (no charge) which is easily extended by walking the trail on one’s own initiative. After a couple of hours doing this, there’s a driving tour outlined in the excellent leaflet. The staff are knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. One can learn a great deal about a very significant Civil War battle; altogether a day very well spent.
  • Very nicely shaded with many interesting monuments & historical markers to read. Not busy. Plenty of parking & picnic tables. Other visitors were friendly. Nice little escape on the outskirts of the busy downtown area.
