I grew up here but this national park did not exist back then. It is great to see the preservation of our history and historical buildings. There is a lot of information now at the site, which is great for self guided tours. The area...More

Loved the history explained at the Visitor Center via the multimedia presentation. This is the history lesson that grabbed my attention in grade school, and it still is extremely interesting. The Battle Road walk is very worthwhile. especially if you use the cell phone tour.

Amazing to stand where such significant events of history happened. The Park Ranger gave us a wonderful verbal presentation by the bridge. Very informative, fascinating. The visitors center/gift shop was also good.
