This was another Great American War battlefield. There are many in the local area and this one was full of monuments and placards with descriptions of what happened here. I would recommend to those interested in history.

Laid out for reflection. Lots of battles were fought in Richmond and surrounding. Will a little imagination you can see the soldiers sill lying in the trenches and hear the gunfire. Reflection required.
