I give it a 5 because it needs to be honored. I was here to pay respects for Veteran's Day. I see they are building a new visitor center. I can only hope the new center doesn't erase the truth to appease the masses. It's...More

This is a little gem. Very beautiful. I felt very humbled after hiking the grounds and reading the history of this battlefield. Very nice little quaint visitor center. Really enjoyed it. Beautiful monument.

One of the best kept Civil War secrets. Park is always clean, well maintained. The re-enactment in Feb is definitely worth visiting. Great place for scouting merit badges, home schooling etc. Will be back again and again.

The battlefield area is extremely busy during re-enactment events but well worth it for history lovers. For a much quieter time visit the park at other times and get a totally different perspective.

This review will not give away the spoiler. The question is: why did this fight between two groups of nearly the same size produce lopsided results? The small museum does a good job of telling the story of the battle. The walk through the battlefield...More
