The movie is worth it. Price is reasonable. The sign displays can give you the same information, but the events acted out give you a better visual effect. There is an easy trail behind the visitor center. The Fredericksburg National Cemetery is next to it....More

There are four parks in the Fredericksburg area associated with the Civil War. Among the horrible tragedy of the war, there are stories of outstanding service and heroism. If you are a Civil War buff, and even if not, these parks are a must.

Actually, it's impossible to see everything, but our step-on tour with Scott Walker of Hallowed Ground Tours was the most efficient and informative way to understand the Battles of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, the Wilderness, and Spotsylvania. He directed us down country roads to the battlefields, explained...More

This park provides a tranquil escape for walks, jog/runs, cycling whilst absorbing nature, and if want, period history. Reflections often cause you to pause to think about the horrors of the Civil War and the social issues.

The park consists of four areas spread over a large portion of the Fredericksburg vicinity. There were four battles fought here: Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, The Wilderness and Spotsylvania Court House. Visit them all to get the complete story.

This is another site great for American history buff. We found it to be informative and very interesting. You can go at your own pace and take time to read the signs.

Great park and part of the 4 major battles fought in the Civil War in the area. Frederickburg and Chancellorsville have movies and large exhibits that explain all about the battles that occurred here. It's very convenient since all the battlefields are within 20 minutes...More

I recently became aware that my great-grandfather's infantry regiment was at the Battle of Chancellorsville. I read in the regimental history that they were in a reserve position and located at the extreme right flank of the Union army. Upon arrival to the visitor's center,...More

As we travel through Virginia the history here can be humbling. This park once again proves why the National Park system is important. Not as much to see as other locations but do not miss it.
