Richmond National Battlefield Park

470 Tredegar Street, Richmond, VA 23219, USA

The park's resources include a naval battle, a key industrial complex, the Confederacy's largest hospital, dozens of miles of elaborate original fortifications, and the evocative spots where determined soldiers stood paces apart and fought with rifles, reaping a staggering human cost. Located on the site of Tredegar Iron Works, the American Civil War Center at Historic Tredegar is the nation's first museum to explore the war from Union, Confederate and African American perspectives.
