We enjoyed the 22 minute informative film that is shown in the visitor's center. It made the walk on the grounds even more awe inspiring. I'd love to go again during a reenactment.

When we arrived, a volunteer was giving a brief in the historical events that happened here. Very knowledgeable and engaging. Lots of artifacts and very nice displays. The grounds were kept up. A must see in the area.

I really enjoyed the park. We walked the Bloody angle. I felt that this was well laid out and informative. The plants that fill the field now attract a wonderful amount of Butterflies. The field seems well manicured in all the walking areas. There were...More
