I am a VMI grad, so my review is not unbiased 😜
sep. 2021
This is just a must see for anyone curious or interested in the Civil War. VMI is the only military college in the world where cadets actually fought in battle and here is where ten of them died. I personally feel that this is a hard lesson in favor of peaceful solutions to issues.

A lesser known but intriguing Civil War battle site
juli 2021
A lesser known but intriguing Civil War battle site. Scene of the famous attack of the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) cadets, featured fictionally in the John Wayne movie "The Horse Soldiers". Sprawling grounds with the preserved farm houses at the center of the battle. The Virginia Museum of the Civil War is fine, and the New Market Battlefield Military Museum is excellent. Walking through the whole park, including through the underpass below the interstate, takes about two hours.

Must Visit
mars 2021 • Vänner
Read up on the battle first. The movie in the museum is a little tedious but worth watching.. Hike the whole battlefield including the important section east of I-81...there's a pedestrian tunnel under the interstate. Take time to read the booklet comments at each marker. Reflect on the blood that was spilled and the suffering that was endured to Forge America into a better country. Make sure to see the river overlook. MOST Highly recommend.

Great Park of full history !!
aug. 2020
We love the history on the Civil War and the relics of a special time in place. The history of this generation is spectacular and the old school plantations and meadows bring you back in time.

Small Battlefield, Worth the stop.
juli 2020
The day we visited Virginia humidity skyrocketed for us when we went on the farm. The museum was under an update for the center part of their bottom level. What we did have access to was very nice. The farm was well preserved. When you walk in the house the front room, in a nod in the direction of historic immersion for what a field hospital may have felt like, the wall has "blood" on it. I like this, it makes the view feel rather than imagine, what it may have been line to be standing in that home.

Small Battlefield but worth a visit
nov. 2019
I-81 divided the battle field into 2 parts but accessible by tunnel under the interstate. A small battlefield but full of history of the Battle of the Civil war in the area. A small fee allow visitors to visit the Museum and access the trail to different area of the battlefield. The battlefield was the Bushong's family orchard before the Civil War turned the property into the battlefield. To learn more about the Bushong family, the farm and the historic moment of the Civil war, visitors can easily follow the mark and the map. I like it because it is not too overwhelm to enjoy and to learn.

Interesting history

You should definitely take the time to watch the film, it does a great job putting together to battle and what led to it. We enjoyed the museum also

Little Known Site, but worth your time
juli 2019
Small in comparison to other fields, but enough to get your Fitbit steps. Very well documented walking tour. Personnel are friendly and will approach you rather than you having to seek them out. They are knowledgeable (and probably VMI grads or students). Excellent vista to the East. Unfortunately, an interstate highway bi-sects the park, but the other side of the field is accessible via a tunnel. Plenty of benches to rest under the shade of the trees. We were on a schedule so I cannot comment on the museum or bookshop.

Great museum and battlefield
aug. 2019
You could easily spend 2-3 hours viewing the museum (with 40-minute movie), the battlefield, and the Bushong Farm buildings. Also be sure to check out the two overlooks where you get a nice view of the Shenandoah River.

A Hidden Gem
juli 2019 • Ensam
This is a battle I didn't know anything about prior to visiting it. The park is close to 81, so if you are near that area, I recommend stopping. It is 7 dollars to tour the battlefield and ten dollars for the museum and battlefield. The walk of the battlefield is one mile and there are different signs to tell you what happened. There are also two spots with a nice overlook into the Shenandoah Valley. It is not Antietam, Manassas, nor Gettysburg, but it is a great place and offers a different story, one we don't hear a lot or at all.
