The battlefield is designed
primarily for self-guided walking tours, but guided tours by qualified battlefield
guides are available for groups and individuals by appointment. These walking tours
are offered at no charge, but donations which will be used for battlefield development
and preservation are encouraged and would be gratefully accepted. The battlefield can
be toured in less than one hour, though a longer stay will permit the visitor to
explore more of the battlefield and learn more about the December 17, 1862 battle.
