Cold Harbor Battlefield Park Description
The battle of Cold Harbor was one of the final conflicts of General Gran'ts Overland Campaign
during the Civil War and one of the bloodiest in our country's history. The battlefield is now part
of the Cold Harbor Battlefield Park, which maintains 3 separate locations that all explain events
that unfolded here during the summer of 1864. The park's Visitor Center is the starting point for the auto tour of the
battlefield. There are a few miles of hiking trails in each of the 3 park locations, which have markers
that explain significant events that occured here. Confederate and Union breastworks can be seen in several
locations along the way.
