So many of the battlefields have been developed over, but check out Malvern Hill, just SE of the city. It is in pristine condition and walking trails give you a perfect sense of the battle. Nearby Glendale is in the planning stages, so it will...More

Great museum at Tredegar! Wonderful interpretation of both the building and the battles. Very well done and not one-sided. And it's free!

My husband and I spent a long and happy day visiting several sites in this park. Tredegar was a great place to start for context; a friendly and well-informed ranger there helped us plan the rest of our day. We moved on to Drewry’s Bluff/Fort...More

I always like to visit the Ranger Station first, but this battlefield doesn’t really have one. If you’re looking for a stamp for your parks passport, go to The Tredegar Civil War Museum gift shop counter.

We spend the afternoon traveling along the roads around Richmond. The weather was sunny and warm and there were few people visiting the sites. It helped one understand the magnitude of the battles.

Nice displays and exhibits. Well done tying in the history of the iron works and the local history. Lots of buildings to explore if you pay for entrance to that area.
