We enjoy learning the history of the Civil War in this area and actually seeing the cannons, the home which was used as a hospital, and the home used as a command post. The historical markers were very informative and helpful.

We took our daughter there as part of her home school education. The personnel was exceptional and the self-guided tour was so enjoyable. Great place for the whole family!

A great Civil War Battlefield National Park. Some driving, some walking. I think it'd be perfect on a bike.

Even if your not a history buff you will find this a haunting and intriguing experience. There are hiking trails and bike routes as well. The visitor's center tells you what you need to understand the battle and its importance to us all.
