Since 1916, the American people have entrusted the National Park Service with the care of their national parks. With the help of volunteers and park partners, we are proud to safeguard these more than 400 places and to share their stories with more than 275 million visitors every year. But our work doesn't stop there.

We are proud that tribes, local governments, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and individual citizens ask for our help in revitalizing their communities, preserving local history, celebrating local heritage, and creating close to home opportunities for kids and families to get outside, be active, and have fun.

There is so much to see. I do not have enough words to explain this battlefield. The ranger tour guide was excellent. I wish I could remember her name. She's a senior in college studying to be a park ranger. When she spoke you could see in her eyes how much this place has impacted her. We also did our own ghost hunting in the evening, so much fun. Everything is free!

If you like civil war history this park is for you. It's immense. Covers a huge area. You can take the guided tour or go on your own and use your smartphone at each stop to listen to a brief description. Plan on 1-2 hours. Nice museum with a theater that plays an overview of the park's historical significance. Awesome monuments. Climb up the Wilder tower for a panoramic view of the battlefield.

This is an amazing battlefield park. The museum movie is a must. The car tour is easy to navigate, and after the movie it helped to visualize the battle. There are a plethora of monuments, more than any other park I have been to. Some are unique such as the tower you can climb up.

So worth the drive, to walk through and be on the grounds of history. It's very moving. Its a lot to take in. Its beautiful yet heart breaking at the same time. If you are stopping by the surrounding area for a visit, definitely make your way over here. It's free, its educational, its moving!
