We had only time for a short visit but were impressed by the amount of information both in the Visitors' Center and the layout of the battlefield. The personnel were friendly and helpful. There is a lot of history explained here.

I went looking for the places that my great, great grandfather would have been during this battle. A young lady ranger at the welcome center found and pinpointed where he was each day of the battle. What a great experience.
