  • Well curated National Park. Beautiful countryside. The museum has one of the best historical firearms collection I've seen. It's not very easy to put together a clear picture of the major battle fought here. If you're not a big fan of the historic period, maybe just skip it. There's not much else to do in the depressing towns nearby.
  • Excellent video presentation in the theater. Impressive gun/rifle collection. There is a smartphone tour you can take of the entire park.
  • The video is worth seeing. Make sure to talk to a park ranger to get info about uniforms and gear.
  • Few finer examples of courage in chaos exist in U.S. military history. No one on the field fully understood how the battle raged , yet individual brigade and corps commanders, along with common soldiers, somehow prevented a complete Federal collapse. It always comes down to the privates - to the everlasting glory of the infantry. And the park also houses one of the finest collections of U.S. long arms extant, but a few of which I photographed.
  • Awesome place full of history and monuments that cause us to remember. The grounds and facilities are extremely well kept and it is all free!
