“There is no better Civil war Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

The Park is extremely well done, educational and yet extremely fun for the whole family. You actually feel like you went back in time. The big shocker to me is how few people visit this park, its less then the price of a movie, I don't understand the lack of interest in history in our culture. Anyway its an all day activity unless you dare to do the over night camp.
