Pamplin Historical Park

The National Museum of the Civil War Soldier
This historic park is a 422-acre campus that features four award-winning museums, four historic homes, costumed living history demonstrations, guided tours and the *Breakthrough Battlefield of April 2, 1865. Visitors can explore the everyday world of Civil War soldiers, discover why for millions of Americans the Southern way of life in the 1860s was ''A Land Worth Fighting For'', learn why slavery became such a divisive issue in 1850s America, and understand why one of the Civil War's most important battles took place on a seemingly remote Virginia farm.
