I was expected a much larger battlefield with statues, tours, etc. But I should have been tipped off when I went there on a Friday and they were not open. They only open on the weekends I assume, as we went back on a Saturday and the gates were open. That being said, we learned so much from the volunteer who came out of the visitors center and met us at our car! He explained how they recently saved most of the acreage from development and he was very proud of it, as he should be! He proceeded to tell us all about the history of the two battles and the surrounding area. We walked around the home and went up the hill to read to some of the surrounding historic plaques. There really is not much here compared to much larger battlefields in the area, but the personal touch was well worth it! I am very impressed with the dedication to helping preserve areas like this, just for that alone it is worth visiting.
