We are on a road trip from England covering the Deep South in an RV. This historic place was on our list to visit, and we are so happy that we did. A tranquil location, filled with pride and respect seeped in history.

While there are 1,300 monuments and markers in this military park, which at times appears confusing, someone has taken great pains to mark each significant milestone about what happened here during the civil war. I only wish the visitor center had a relief map that...More

First off, you go to the museum registrar and attend the movie summarizing the north and south's civil war-----interesting enough you will set through it at least twice.

The young Park Ranger who greeted us was an indication of how Special these Hallowed Grounds are! She was so professionally informative. As we slowly took our time driving thru the Park, we looked over the steep hills and ravines. I commented to the family,...More

15$ a car load, but there was no one at the gate, we went memorial day weekend and an hour before the parked closed, so we only stayed and watched the 20 minute documentary which was free anyway. Definitely a great overview... More
