In many ways, the Union siege of Petersburg was the climactic battle of the American Civil War and the subsequent Confederate surrender merely the denouement. Today, more than 150,000 visitors tour Petersburg National Battlefield Park annually. However, many never set foot on the multiuse national recreation trail that rings the park. A mandatory visit for residents and tourists with even passing interest in U.S. history, the battlefield park doubles as an outdoor escape for locals.
