Description

The Spotsylvania Battlefield driving tour begins at the Spotsylvania Battlefield Exhibit Shelter beside Laurel Hill where the battle opened. Follow the remaining tour stops to understand how this two week battle unfolded, with its horrific climax at the Bloody Angle, tour stop 3. As our best-preserved battlefield, Spotsylvania Battlefield also features a 7.5-mile trail that weaves throughout the battlefield. To see a set of reconstructed earthworks, deviate from the driving tour by bearing right before you reach stop 4, the Harrison House. The reconstructed works are at the road's dead end. Retrace your steps to continue on the driving tour.
