There are a lot of ways to learn about our battlefields and help us protect this special place! You can visit the park, take a hike on one of our trails, complete a Junior Ranger book, virtually visit the park, read a book about the Civil War, explore our virtual classroom program, or ask a trusted adult about Civil War battlefields.
Become a Junior Ranger!
Our park has four booklets of activities available for kids. After completing each booklet, Junior Rangers receive a patch to mark their accomplishment. Earn all four "rocker" patches to complete your set!
Visit our Junior Ranger page to learn more about our Junior Ranger program!
Virtual Park Fun
Not able to visit the park in person but still want to learn about the battlefields or record when you "visited"? Check out the "Park Fun" page for virtual passport stamps and activities!
Explore the Battlefield Online
Want to know more about the Battle of Fredericksburg? You can learn about the battle through the eyes of the people who experienced it right from your computer! Check out Community at War, our interactive website that helps you explore the stories from the battlefield and town. Have questions for our rangers but can't make it to the park? Community at War lets you submit questions to park staff which they will answer online.
