Petersburg National Park Description
Petersburg Battlefield National Park commemorates the 10-month long siege of Petersburg by Union troops
during the Civil War. Travel the tour road to learn about the series of battles waged between Grant's
Union army and General Lee's Confederate troops.
As you cycle through the park on the 13 miles of wide multiuse trails, you can see the remains of Civil War breastworks.
The multiuse trails intersect the tour road and take you past some of the historical markers along the way.
