In November of 1863 Union troops gained final control.
The park was created to preserve these battlefields. There are numerous monuments, historical tablets, exhibits, and trails. There is an auto tour that you can take and there is also the visitors center which houses exhibits, a bookstore, and a collection of military arms.
This park draws several visitors each year, along with several runners, cyclists, and walkers. As you go through the park, you will probably see several deer out in the fields.
Our family enjoys going to the park to hike the trails, bike, or just walk and take in the exhibits. Last year, we enjoyed going to a battle reenactment in the park.
If you love Civil War history, this is definitely a park you will want to visit.
