I live near the park, it's a beautiful walk or run area steeped with history. The park, its facility and scheduled events are always amazing.

The visitor center is small but it tells you about 2 battles and even had a light board to give you a visual. Very good information. Be careful using GPS to get there as we went in a circle.

I love to visit historical places when I am in the area. It is well marked and has plenty of information so that you can get a good idea of what was happening in the area. The surroundings are beautiful.

We walked the short tour thru the battle field and saw the trenches that were dug for protection over 160 years ago. First we listened to the video setting the background of the battle. The ranger was knowledgable and willing to share the information.

Small battlefield with a small museum and gift shop. There are many trails to run and a small one you can drive on. Be sure to get your passport stamped in the gift shop.

Stopped by while on a business trip. The battlefield is smaller but the park center and especially the Park Ranger are very informative. I wish I had more time because it would be a great place for a walk. The driving tour was short but...More
