Largely because it is off the beaten path and not near an urban area, this is (argueably) the best preserved of all of the Civil War battlefields. Every effort has been made to return it to, and maintain it in, it's state at the time of the battle; up to and including what is planted in the fields. Haunting because of it's almost eerie quietness. Virtually never crowded except on summer weekends and even then not badly. Excellent small museum with an outstanding film to put the battle in historical perspective. Beautiful National Cemetary overlooking the Tennessee River adjacent to the museum. Great self-guided auto tour and very helpful staff.
