This battlefield has a good amount of markers and a few monuments explaining what happened here. The battlefield is currently undergoing restoration to make is appear as it did when the battle happened. The visitor center has some good exhibits with a nice gift shop.

Went for the revolutionary war battle program. They had people dressed as times before, showed weaponry of the times and demonstrated the weapons. Great film in the visitors center. Rangers gave tours of the battlefield. Also civil war battles were fought here.
