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.

This was another Great American War battlefield. There are many in the local area and this one was full of monuments and placards with descriptions of what happened here. I would recommend to those interested in history.

Laid out for reflection. Lots of battles were fought in Richmond and surrounding. Will a little imagination you can see the soldiers sill lying in the trenches and hear the gunfire. Reflection required.

The Battlefield are at various points around the Richmond and Petersburg areas. I would recommend starting the tour at Tredegar Iron Works and give yourself more than one day.
