Battle Overview Talks
Park staff are happy to give brief unscheduled battle overviews (typically 15-20 minutes) from the Fredericksburg or Chancellorsville Battlefield Visitor Centers, when staffing levels and circumstances allow. If you are visiting at a time when no Ranger programs are scheduled, but would be interested in a short talk, feel free to ask the staff member at the desk.
Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park does not provide personal guided tours of the battlefield, however, there are a number of private guides in the region who do provide this service.
Bringing a Group to the Park
If you are bringing a large group to the park you may need to apply for a permit. Visit Permits & Reservations to learn about permits.
