Spotsylvania History Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike makes a circuit through the Spotsylvania Court House Battlefield, where Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant clashed as Grant doggedly pushed for Richmond in the Civil War’s latter stages.

A marked path takes you to significant battle sites and homesites of the time, cushioned among the gently rolling hills of Spotsylvania County. The mix of eye-appealing forest and field, important earthworks, and interpretive information makes for a rewarding historic hike."
