Fall is a great time to visit the Civil War battlefields near Washington, DC. They are beautiful historic sites to visit and pay tribute to American Civil War heroes. The National Park Service operates the Visitor Centers and offers interpretive talks, historic exhibits, special events, and Junior Ranger programs. Visiting the battlefields is a great way to enjoy some outdoor recreation while learning something new.
