This was the last activity we did on a very long day so the kids were kind of wilting. I'd go again though and do more walking and reading. Staff was amazing!

Wonderful park with alot of history to learn! Would definitely go back the next time I'm in TN. Easy walking, although use caution when crossing the street to visit cemetery.

Interesting historical review of the Civil War battle. Free tours, guided walking and self walking. A very large area. You can get in and out in 30 to 45 minutes if needed.

I am still in awe of how many sacrificed their lives on this battlefield. It is a monument that always brings me to tears. This monument is well cared for and a hallowed, beautiful place to sit and reflect.
