Richmond National Battlefield Park - Review
During the days of the Confederacy and the Civil War, Richmond was the political and social centre of it all. In and around there are a string of battlefields where invaders have tried to capture Richmond but have settled for Petersburg and the neighbouring cities in an attempt to isolate and surround Richmond. Before you begin your tour of the battlefields, the first order of business is getting familiar with what actually went down on those grounds.
The Richmond Civil War Visitor Center will show you a small documentary on the battles and then take you around an exhibit called “Richmond Speaks”. Once you’re oriented, so to speak, you’ll be more at ease as you explore the battlefields. Be sure to visit the Chimborazo Medical Museum, the Confederacy’s largest hospitals and the Cold Harbour, the site of one of the bloodiest battles during that time.

This is hallowed ground. Great trails. I recommend reading up on the battle before going. I was humbled to stand where so many great men stood and so many brave men fell.
A battlefield with three monuments. It's mostly a 1.5 mile loop to walk through with 6 waysides along the way.
Came here on a school field trip with my daughter. The rangers were very informative and fun. Would definitely go back
Attended the June 27th anniversary reenactment for the kids. This staff did an amazing job to involve and educate all of us.
There are cannons and split rail fences, and a nice set of trails in the forest. This is a wonderful place to take pictures or just escape from the world for a little while.
