Glendale

Frazier's Farm

June 30, 1862

Henrico County, Virginia

Though much of the Glendale battlefield remains in private hands, the Richmond National Battlefield Park recently opened a new Visitor Center at the Glendale National Cemetery. Visitors can tour the cemetery and a few other spots along the historic roads that figured prominently in the battle. Hopefully a new National Park will be born here in the future.

Essential To-Do List:
Glendale

Get the most out of your Civil War battlefield visit by exploring these recommended To-Dos.

Tour the Glendale Battlefield

Glendale was arguably the most decisive battle -- and one of the best preserved battlefields -- of the Seven Days battles.

Visit the Glendale National Cemetery

Over a thousand Union soldiers who fell during the Seven Days Battles, at places such as Malvern Hill, Frayser's Farm and Harrison's Landing, are interred at this cemetery, on the site of the Battle of Glendale.

See the Pvt. Benjamin B. Levy Marker

Levy 'took the gun of a sick comrade, went into the fight, and when the color bearers were shot down, carried the colors and saved them from capture' near this spot, becoming one of the first Jews to earn the Medal of Honor.
