Civil War battlefields in Virginia

Virginia was the center of much Civil War Activity. The American Civil War was a divisive war that changed U.S. history forever, with long repercussions in its aftermath. It also sent the country in a new direction. Many of the battles during the war took place right here in Northern Virginia. Today, many of these hallowed grounds have been preserved and opened to the public. 

According to the National Park Service (NPS), a total of 122 battles were fought in the State of Virginia during the Civil War. I invite you to read more in another article I've written on another platform.
