We had a wonderful day visiting the battlefield. We saw the movie, met with a ranger and explored the park. The park is absolutely beautiful. It is a wonderful place to walk, ride bicycles, ride horses, etc... Highly recommend!

This is a must if you are in the area both the park and museum have so much in to see. The Museum has a film running about every 40 minutes that is very good in content and quality of picture and sound. The park itself has many monuments and actual gun enplacements and an easy to follow car/bike tour.

Our nations first military park got it right. The park has preserved land that is sacred and should be protected for all. The park historian, Jim Ogden is a wealth of information. The many markers and monuments from each state represented, are located as close to actual battle positions as possible. Spend the time to understand and appreciate what was... More

If you are in the area, you should stop by here, if, for no other reason, than to see the amazing Fuller Gun Collection. The firearms in the collection date from the late 1500's to the first world war. These are not the replicas from movies, and there are guns in this collection you can't believe you are seeing in...

A cellphone-based tour with eight stops makes it very easy to take a car tour of this military park, the oldest and largest national military park in the United States. Be sure to visit the excellent Visitor's Center first. A movie provides the background and really helps one understand the battles that took place here over the course of a... More

What a beautiful National Park! We love history, so this was an exciting and enjoyable visit. We took the "car tour" first and that was really helpful. Later we took a Ranger guided tour and the tour guide was awesome. Everything really came together, We also viewed the movie in the Visitor Center and that was well worth the time.... More

In all the years I have lived in Tennessee and driven near this site on the way to Atlanta, I never realized that an important and very nicely preserved civil war battlefield was right here. They have a self-guided tour that takes you through the the major points of the battle, using your phone to hear that narration. Like most... More

This has an excellent visitor center with a film to get you oriented to this civil war battlefield. It is a very large park and has 8 stops along the way. You call a phone number and press the number of the stop and can hear exactly what went on at this place. So easy to use. The Military Park... More

Touring this battlefield gives one a good perspective about what the troops both Northern and Confederate endured during this historic 1863 battle. Very moving 26 minute video before visiting the battlefield highly recommended.
