I have a much better understanding of Richmond's role in the Civil War and the number of battles fought in its vicinity. A good overview of the end of the Civil War. Start here before visiting the battlefield sites around Richmond and Petersburg.

The Richmond National Battlefield Park is actually part of Chimborazo park, and it's quite a large park. There is a museum telling of how the largest confederate hospital was on the grounds, and how they treated confederate and union soldiers.

Excellent way to get a feel for the history of the area even for people that are less mobile or when the weather is inclement. Nice to save our feet for other outings.

This battlefield park is very spread out over several miles. It was worth all the driving though because there were displays explaining the action and movement of the troops. Very scenic and good way to commune with nature! A ton of earthworks on every battlefield.

This visit site begins at the main Battlefield Park's Visitor's Center where National Park employees are there in number to assist in getting you the information for the greatest amount of information you will be able to gather in the overall battlefield(s) visit. There are at least 2+ dozen different "sites" to see that range from the very small "farms"... More

This national park should have had “Battlefield” in its name pluralized to Battlefields because Richmond National Battlefield Park encompasses ten battlefields and two more sites associated with the two campaigns for Richmond. They are: Chickahominy Bluff Battlefield, Fort Harrison Battlefield, Drewry's Bluff (Fort Darling) Battlefield, Glendale Battlefield, and Malvern Hill Battlefield---all in Richmond, plus Parker's Battery in Chester, plus Totopotomoy...
