Richmonds National Battlefield Park embodies the complex involvement Richmond had in the Civil War. The park is home to a number of different battlefields, miles of elaborate original fortifications, a critical industrial complex, and the Confederacy's largest hospital. The vast park covers more than 80 square miles with 13 separate battle sites and four modern visitor’s centers in the City of Richmond, Henrico, Hanover, and Chesterfield counties.
Visitors can explore the park by walking, driving, and taking guided tours to special events and museum exhibits. The establishment also hosts a variety of talks, tours, living history demonstrations, and special events, which are presented year-round throughout the park by experienced staff. Committed to education, the park also runs some hands-on educational activities and trips for students and learners.
