This is a 5-10 minute stop. Not much there at all. Good is you are coming to Corydon for other activities and want to make a quick stop.

My own mother drove by one day on the way to our cousin's house for Thanksgiving dinner. She said she saw a civil... More

This is the only Civil War battlefield site in Indiana, so if you are a history buff, this should probably be on your list to visit. Not much to see, but I would love to get out there with a metal detector.

I just happened to be in the area and decided to stop there to read the markers, etc. It's well maintained and worth a quick stop if you are nearby. It's also the only actual Civil War battle to take place on Indiana soil. That being said there isn't much to see there. And any rate, it's just a few... More

As a Civil War and Indiana history buff this was a special site for me. I appreciated the fact that it was not commercialized and still looking much like must have been the day of the battle.

This small park is a quick side of the road piece of history. The site of the Battle of Corydon in Harrison County Indiana, it has historical monuments, a small cabin representative of the era and nice roadside park

A little piece of local Civil War history. This site is notable because it was the only battle fought on Indiana soil. There really isn't much to see or do there, but the park does commentates a worthy event. There is a plaque on site with information about the battle. Worth the stop if you are a Civil War buff.
