Civil War students will relish a visit to Petersburg National Battlefield Park. Well preserved and maintained as was in 1864-65. Walk and ride through the park. Beginning with the assaults on the outver defensive perimeter, you will see where few Confederate soldiers held off the...More

This battlefield was well laid out and combined driving with several stopping points, some requiring walking, but the walks were easy. The earthworks were amazing and the map supplied additional info on each stop. Entrance to the park was free. A pleasant way to spend...More

A bit disappointed about the closing, but the driving tour was good. Check out the Dictator and the Crater while there.
