The battleground has multiple entrances, has guided tours, illustrates the vastness of the battles and the tremendous losses of life. Excellent site for Civil War buffs and historians.

Beautiful setting for a somber memorial. There’s a lot to learn and see. I recommend taking a hike and really thinking what must it must have been like. Great place to get lost in history. Park staff are knowledgeable and helpful.
