A walk to the heights reveals an amazing view of the City as well as a sobering reminder of the 15,000+ veterans buried here.

Short, highly accessible trail goes around the center exploring major Stonewall Jackson sites (we took a stroller).
The visitor center has a great film and the displays of 3 battlefields (chancellorsville, wilderness and spotsylvania) are all in one site and are as good as anything the smithsonian has in DC.
