Interested in taking an overview tour?

During seasons with high visitation (typically the summer months and weekends in the spring and fall), the park offers a set of standard programs which are free and open to the public. Please see our Operating Hours and Seasons page for information on regularly scheduled guided tours.

Looking for something different or more extensive?

Other guided tour requests can usually be accommodated from special groups. The earlier a group is able to schedule their visit, the more likely the park will be able to accommodate, so call early! See the contact information below:

  • To request a brief orientation talk (25-45 minutes) for a large group traveling in the off-season, or for a time outside our normal tours, contact Frank O'Reilly, frank_o'
  • We have specific programs available for military groups looking to use the battlefields for educational purposes. Learn more about planning a military staff ride.
  • Those wanting guides for Civil War Round Tables or other group tours should contact Frank O'Reilly, frank_o'
  • Teachers planning school field trips should contact education coordinator Peter Maugle by email at

Also see the special events page for additional programs.
