Our historic battlefields of the Civil War are mostly preserved as National Park sites. They are not necessarily National Parks – as there are different designations for types of parks in the park system.
These parks have fantastic Visitor Centers that interpret the particular history of that site as well as the context of the wider war.
In today’s world, these protected areas are often found in highly populated urban areas. They preserve a landscape from the era of the Civil War and can also serve as important wildlife refuges. They are beautiful places.
