This is a rather small area, but historic. A guide came up to us and told us a bit of history about each monument, which was helpful. My husband is more interested in history, and he liked it. This can be a nice, quick stop.

It was super helpful to have a guide in period costume talk us through the historical significance of the memorials and plaques that we were seeing! Stop first in the Visitor's Center across the street to pick up a pamphlet with information.
