  • We stopped here as the last stop on the tour. It is very pretty and only Union soldiers are buried here. Not overly large so it can be seen pretty quick.  more »

  • History, History, and more history. Was a bit discouraged at seeing a sign with rates on it, but we were able to explore without needing to pay for any service. Smaller than Gettysburg, easy to traverse freely, and just as significant in American history
  • Nice experience. Everyone in the main office was very helpful and nice. So much history.
  • Beautiful scenery! Wonderful place for pictures! So neat to be somewhere where history happened.
  • Nice clean park, the driving tour is off the main roads, everyone was nice at the main office. Only complaint was the CD that came with the field book sort of babbled about other stuff and didn't really focus on what happened at the spot you were at, so I'm still not quite sure how and why the battle developed as it did. I would give it a big ole 5 if it had a Gettysburg-quality auto CD.
  • Should be required visit for all kids in school. You can spend 2 hours or two days and not run out of monuments to visit and things to learn. They have a great companion app for your phone that lets you get info based on where you are.... very cool!
