A nice easy hike with Civil War significance. The country's smallest national cemetery is located here - quite an interesting battle to learn about.

Compact Civil War battlefield. The free guided tours on Saturdays and Sundays are a must. The tour guides are very knowledgable.

If you're a Civil War buff, or even if you're not, this is a great little place to go with friends/family on a sunny autumn afternoon. We took the 1 pm tour (they give 11 am and 1 pm tours on the weekend) last Sunday which just happened to be the anniversary of the batlle. Our tour guide (I believe his name was Mr. Glenn?) was excellent....really gave an excellent retelling of what went on here during the Civil War. You can walk over the bluff and view the Potomac (Maryland on the other side). Great outing for a morning or afternoon.

Went for a short drive on a Sunday and ended up at the Battlefield. It is kind of out of the way to get to because you have to drive through a resdidential area but then there it is tucked away. Very nice area, clean and well kept. They have guided tours but we did our own thing. Would be totally awesome if they had a sound system that could enhance the walk. Nice clear paths, beautiful views of the river. the cemetary is so tiny but that is what makes it nice, only one grave is identified. Great safe place for a family to take a stroll and get some civil war education at the same time

Lots of work being done to the area. There is a Civil War cemetery that is still tended to by family members...pretty cool. Quiet, it is a bit of a hike from the parking lot, but worth it. Make sure to read the trail markers for the historical background
