  • Loved it. I used to have field trips as a child there with republic school district. The park truly hasn't changed which is why I love it. I still bike the park on occasion or ever drive thru it with my child and let her learn about all the history. When she was younger she just liked looking at all the stuff. It is well worth a visit.
  • One of the most interesting Civil War sites to visit. Learn, drive or hike, visit the museum and learning center, tour the home that was key to the battle, and visualize the strategizing and fighting and vast territory in a new way. Exceptional park.
  • Go, just go..... You will understand mere words cannot express the feeling of entering this place... This hallowed place.... True history all around.....the deafening silence when you stand still and think of all who fought and died here. Just go.
  • For those of you who are Civil War history (or military history) buffs, pay attention to the collections of firearms and general militaria displayed in the museum at the Visitor's Center. There are some seriously rare and interesting pieces to be found there. Make sure to chat with the staff to learn how the park came to acquire such an incredible collection, too! They're very knowledgeable and it's a neat story.
  • Loved going here and seeing all the historical sights. Looking forward to trying out the biking trails as it warms up.
