The Civil War In
Chesterfield County has 11 park sites associated with the Civil War. Each of these sites has its own unique story to tell. Collectively, these links in a chain tell the larger story of one of the most important military campaigns of the war but seldom told. Not all sites are accessible some have just been purchased and will soon be available to the public. There are local historians dedicated to preserving the battle sites and trench-works. If we don't save them today, they will not be available tomorrow. Your donation for this worthy cause would be greatly appreciated.
Civil War Tour Guide Book: The Bermuda Hundred Campaign Tour Guide tells about the pivotal role that Chesterfield County played during the last year of the Civil War, a role often overshadowed by bigger battles fought at the same time in Virginia. You will not find a better self-tour guide available than this book.
The Chesterfield Historical Society of Virginia is dedicated to preserving the Civil War sites in Chesterfield County. These sites are being maintained presently by volunteers. If you have a passion for preservation, please consider a donation to help establish historical markers and site maintenance. Donations are welcomed.
