Great history comes alive when you walk these hallowed trails.A definite must for any Civil War buff.The summer intern we encountered was the most pleasant and passionate about her work we have ever met.My trip was considered a success after this battlefield and Gaines mill (right next door)was visited.

Typical Civil War battlefield with nothing special as far as I was concerned. I just enjoy traveling and this was another place to go.

As with many Civil War battlefields there really is not that much left to see after 150 years. There is a small visitors center and a short driving tour. I was getting ready to do a lecture on the war during 1864 so I was very interested, but I can't say the stop added much to my understanding or feel for the battle.

This is a moving site. The earthworks still easily visible here played an important part of the battle fought here and hiking trails weave through them. The very small visitor center has an animated map with colored lights to illustrate the two battles which took place in this location. (I've included a pic of a similar map in my review of Manassas Battlefield). The center was staffed by a friendly and helpful NPS ranger and has a small number of books and souvenirs for purchase.
