  • As an English tourist I found the whole tour of the siege of Petersburg fantastic! I love history, so I highly recommend anyone into their history regardless what era, to do the battlefield tour. I did it on my own. However, all the guys and girls at each visitor center where polite, friendly and extremely helpful. Typical of southern hospitality. Along the route is interesting information about each site and how it contributed to the siege. It gives you a good minds eye.
  • I have not been here for a few years. I have to say I really enjoyed the "updates". The re-enactors were very knowledgeable and friendly. I liked being able to have a conversation with someone who really knew their facts. Learning about the female roles in camp were amazing. I look forward to bringing my sister here to walk in the footsteps of our great great great great grandfather.
