Pamplin Historic Park

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by kwest on March 13, 2002

The park is located just to the south of Petersburg off of I-85. It's where Grant's troops punched through General Lee's lines, forcing the evacuation of Petersburg after a nine month siege. Lee surrendered one week later.

The park strives to be the preeminent Civil War experience, and I think they have succeeded. The new Musuem of the Civil War Solider is exceptionally well presented with both video and audio components.

There are also very well preserved earth works, a plantation house and living history activities.
