  • Although, there is not much to see as far as buildings go this is a major Civil War site. The trails are a good hike and under cover of trees. We went on a few and only saw one other couple. It was a great stop while traveling and I would recommend it to anyone that loves history or just being out in nature.
  • Museum is good and the video is informative. It’s unfortunate that much of the actual site of the fortifications are under private ownership since you only get to see one part of the periphery of the earthworks. The site does need some work since much of the trail highlights are barebones to say the least. However for $4 admission it is worth the trip. I suggest fall or winter. Flooding and insects are prevalent in spring and summer.
