Very interesting stop. Recommend watching the 22-minute video if you have the time. The walking tour of Sunken Road is also very interesting. Staff is very knowledgeable, willing to answer questions and all-around nice.

Before visiting the Battlefield, you should stop in the Center to get more information about self-guided tour and guided tour and map. A great movie about the Civil War and Battlefield plus a few exhibits on both floors. Just note, self-guided tour if free but...More
