Trip Report US Civil War History Buffs

Jump to last reply

We just returned from an afternoon at Ball's Bluff Regional Park in Leesburg, VA. It was our first time there and I would recommend a visit if you are interested in Civil War history. The park is the site of the Battle of Ball's Bluff (what else?). It is a wooded area with lots of trails dotted with explanatory placards and pictures where you can follow the battle and see the terrain pretty much as it was then. The park also has one of the smallest national cemeteries in the country, with 25 graves, 24 of them marked unknown. Next to the cemetery is a a marker where Colonel Edward D. Baker, the only Senator ever to have been killed in battle fell.

The park is about an hours drive from Gettysburg.
