As a park that preserves four major Civil War battlefields and the "Stonewall" Jackson Shrine, Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park is a large and spread-out park! Our Overall Park Map shows the driving tour for all of our battlefield sites, but while we are excited to share the connections between our individual battlefields, many visitors like to focus their visit on one or two battlefields at a time.
Check below for maps and links to maps for each of our battlefields and the "Stonewall" Jackson Shrine. To check hours of operation, see our Operating Hours and Seasons page.

The Chancellorsville Battlefield driving tour begins at the Chancellorsville Battlefield Visitor Center, which is located near where "Stonewall" Jackson was accidentally mortally wounded during the battle. The following stops weave through the battlefield, stopping at significant home sites and critical points of the battle, like Jackson's Flank Attack and the Hazel Grove-Fairview corridor. Consider driving to partner-owned Day 1 at Chancellorsville, just to the east, or drive the Jackson Trails in the footsteps of Jackson's soldiers on his famous flank march.

The Wilderness Battlefield driving tour begins at Grant's Headquarters, proceeds to the Wilderness Battlefield Exhibit Shelter in Saunders Field, where the battle opened, and continues down the Confederate line to the key corridor of the battlefield, stops 6-8. Check our Operating Hours and Seasons to see if Ellwood Manor is open (when it is closed, you can visit with a parking pass from the Chancellorsville Battlefield Visitor Center), whose gravel driveway is just past Grant's Headquarters on the left.
To download the Spotsylvania Battlefield portion of the overall driving tour map, click here.
The Spotsylvania Battlefield driving tour begins at the Spotsylvania Battlefield Exhibit Shelter beside Laurel Hill where the battle opened. Follow the remaining tour stops to understand how this two week battle unfolded, with its horrific climax at the Bloody Angle, tour stop 3. As our best-preserved battlefield, Spotsylvania Battlefield also features a 7.5-mile trail that weaves throughout the battlefield. To see a set of reconstructed earthworks, deviate from the driving tour by bearing right before you reach stop 4, the Harrison House. The reconstructed works are at the road's dead end. Retrace your steps to continue on the driving tour.
