Highly encourage everyone to attend this park to get an understanding of how we had to fight to colonize this country. There are many trails to take with info along the way. There is also a great audio book route which describes each and every...More

So many of the battlefields have been developed over, but check out Malvern Hill, just SE of the city. It is in pristine condition and walking trails give you a perfect sense of the battle. Nearby Glendale is in the planning stages, so it will...More

Great museum at Tredegar! Wonderful interpretation of both the building and the battles. Very well done and not one-sided. And it's free!

My husband and I spent a long and happy day visiting several sites in this park. Tredegar was a great place to start for context; a friendly and well-informed ranger there helped us plan the rest of our day. We moved on to Drewry’s Bluff/Fort...More

Several branches scattered throughout the city. Once you get to the one at Tredegar, get a map and you can visit the remaining ones. Some may still not be open for the season so check first.

I always like to visit the Ranger Station first, but this battlefield doesn’t really have one. If you’re looking for a stamp for your parks passport, go to The Tredegar Civil War Museum gift shop counter.

This is a National Park site. It is free and excellent. Don’t get confused by the “American Civil War Museum” next door, which costs 12 bucks and is decidedly flawed and factually deficient. Here at the modest National Park site, you can view excellent artifacts...More

We spend the afternoon traveling along the roads around Richmond. The weather was sunny and warm and there were few people visiting the sites. It helped one understand the magnitude of the battles.

Nice displays and exhibits. Well done tying in the history of the iron works and the local history. Lots of buildings to explore if you pay for entrance to that area.
