Along a busy highway but nicely preserved battlefield with lots of trails to help you understand what happened here. Very well laid out and a pleasant visit.

The battle of Cedar Mountain is very interesting as it is the last battle that Jackson commanded solo and the only one that he drew his sword during (sort of; it was rusted into the sheath). There are several signs to read as you walk...More

Nice place now, but I wouldn't have wanted to be there in 1862. Great place to learn something and walk a bit too. Short interpretive trail with signage. I knew about the battle before visiting and am glad I looked into it earlier. The signs...More

This is a lesser known battlefield, easy to access and explore. It's well marked and nearly true to original condition making it one of the better places to visualize the maneuvers. You can cover it well in a couple hours. There's also a historic society...More

The walking trail for this battlefield is a little over a mile in length with 6 or 7 really good wayside markers, with one of the markers identifying the location of General Winder's mortal wounding. I was told by some people working at the Fredericksburg...More
