  • Great National Park in which to experience one of the most important battles in American history. Easy to walk around and a well prepared visitors center make this site a must. I would visit again. Plan on spending 4 or more hours here to savor the experience.

All presenters were friendly, well versed, open to questions. Make sure you have enough time for all sites.
