“The Battlefield”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The visitor center is very clean, informative and a great gift shop. The rangers are very helpful. They offer a lengthy tour with a guide or you can give yourself a self-guided tour. I have always done the self-guided tour. They take a lot of care maintaining the grounds and have special civil war events throughout the year!!!

“Excellent all around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This battlefield is a must-see if you are in the Middle Tennessee area. It is nicely preserved and well-maintained. It has a beautiful visitors center with a small museum. You can see all manner of artifacts from the battle including authentic uniforms, rifles, cannon, and even the Medals of Honor awarded to those who fought in this terrible battle.

We visited here earlier this week and it was sooo worthwhile and interesting. We learned a lot about the Civil War and how it impacted this area of TN. Very well worth the time to visit. Staff was very helpful and friendly.
