Inscription
Over a century has elapsed since the destiny of the nation was debated by arms at Spotsylvania. Many physical changes have altered the appearance of the battlefield during these years including the reclamation of old fields and pastures by an ever-encroaching forest. In 1978 the National Park Service began a vista clearing program aimed at restoring the historic scene at crucial points on the battlefield. Using documented evidence and careful methods to ensure preservation of existing historical features, this project allows park visitors to better understand the fighting and to view the terrain as the participants did in 1864.
