Pamplin Historical Park

Did you know the end of the American Civil War started here?
On the morning of April 2, 1865 you would have been standing near the center of the battle that decided the nine-month campaign for Petersburg and Richmond. In the pre-dawn darkness of that spring morning, 14,000 Union soldiers attacked the Confederate defenses that still survive in the woods before you.

After examining the recreated fortifications ahead, continue your tour at the Battlefield Center. This museum contains exhibits and presentations that provide the background to the pivotal events of April 2, 1865. Then visit the Military Encampment and experience elements of a soldier's life as demonstrated by costumed historians. Finally, explore the Breakthrough Trail, which winds across the historic landscape where the battle occurred.
