This park has established trails with markers describing events at every spot. We only took one trail with ten markers. It took one hour.

This battlefield is sandwiched between Spotsylvania and Cold Harbor Battlefields as part of the Overland Campaign of 1864. This is strictly a walking tour. First the Confederate side, then the Union and then the long walk back. The Confederate trenches are as advertised, the best...More
