You will pass a Days Inn and a privately owned museum. Follow the brown and blue signs on the right side of the road. The VMCW building looks like a drum with rifles stacked against it. We will provide snacks and tools. At the conclusion of the program at 3:00, staff interpreters will provide two interpretive programs: a guided tour of the battlefield for adults and an interactive program for families and children.
