“Great walking park & Ranger Jim knows his CW history”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

Its only open Thur, Fri, Sat & Sun. The professional staff is just Ranger Jim & he can tell you anything about the Civil War in Ga. & beyond. His Great Grandfather (50 GA) fought against 2 of mine 51st NY & 9th NY @ Burnside Bridge. Jim knew the history without even thinking about it.
This park is just like it was back in the 1860's, so wear good walking shoes.

“It was never open and finally one sunday it was open.”
Reviewed 11 February 2013

It seems to be a secret, can't get in the place all the time. Seven visits and I finally found the gates open. Understood once i got in, there was very few people and seemed very dull.

“Outstanding historical park”
Reviewed 3 November 2012

Visited this park in the Fall. Simply beautiful. There is an outstanding film and small museum as well. The trails are marked and easy to follow. The guide map available is helpful with narration while walking the paths. Worth your visit.

“Fighting a Battle Here?”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

Decent sized state Civil War battle park. Visitor center is ok... the film is adequate and exhibits are informative. Some are pretty general. Park itself has several well-marked trails through the woods to locations where fighting happened. I took the Red Loop and it gave me a good look at both the Union and Confederate positions. Be advised- when they say trails can be strenuous and difficult, they mean it. The ground is uneven and hard to navigate at points. This does give a visitor a better appreciation for how hard it would have been to fight a battle in these surroundings. Lots of trench lines can easily be observed. Biggest complaint was signage. It would have been more informative to install signs at key stops in the trail loop rather than give visitors a booklet they have to read at each stop. Overall, worth a stop for anyone with an interest in the Civil War.
