Driving through this park and seeing the memorials, canons, and vistas is an emotionally moving experience. While the area is incredibly beautiful, one can't forget the supreme efforts and human loss that happened here.

We used our cell phone to take the driving tour. Put it in much better perspective than any written display.

Most places I read recommended spending 1-2 hours in the park. We spent almost 6! If you are at all interested in history or military strategy allow time for the movie, time to drive around and time to stop multiple times to soak up the history of gallantry, courage, and sacrifice.
They are making changes to balance the need for erosion control and to enhance the experience of the battlefield - so be aware that you can't always look out across fields because at one time they had to plant trees to manage the erosion.
As with every National Park Service property- the staff is wonderfully trained and helpful.
