No, this is not Gettysburg or Antietam, but the site of this battle is worth a quick stop. Take a while to walk around and see the cemetery. For a Civil War buff like me, this is a hidden gem.

This is a great Civil War battlefield to visit - and a chance to stand on hallowed ground. Go during the "warm months" and you'll get a great guided tour. The trails are awesome and the interpretive signs are top notch. There is a great...More

Perfect for runners, hikers, dog walkers, and history buffs. Learn about the civil war battle and take in the beautiful scenery of the park and the Potomac River. I have been coming here for years and never get tired of it.

This is a cool place if you enjoy history. You must walk from the parking lot, but there are good historical markers to read and trails to take you out to look at the river. It's quiet, not heavily traveled, but a good piece of...More

This is a lovely park that was once a battlefield. It's located inside an inconspicuous subdivision, and it's easy to find, thanks to signage. I recommend stopping in for a walk through some nice scenery.
