We enjoyed the short movie that summarized the Civil War battle fought on this site. The Park Rangers are friendly and helpful.

This is a great site with lots of history. The interpretive center is a good start. The grave yard is a sobering thought of those that fought against slavery. Good signs with descriptions and explanations.
