NPS Petersburg & Pamplin Historical Park Tour
April 2, 2020 @ 5:30 am - 7:30 am
*Due to ongoing concerns about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Pamplin Historical Park and the National Museum of the Civil War Soldier is cancelling or postponing all events and programs until April 15, 2020, based upon the guidance of the CDC regarding “social distancing” and the elimination of large gatherings. This decision is being made out of an abundance of caution. It will be impossible to know if we are overreacting or doing too much, but it will be quite apparent if we underreact or do too little. Please continue to check our website and social media accounts for additional updates.*
As a collaborative effort, Petersburg National Battlefield and Pamplin Historical Park are excited to offer an early morning guided tour of the Breakthrough Battlefield on Thursday, April 2, 2020. The tour will begin at the Jones Farm parking area (near intersection of Hofheimer Way and Church Road) at 5:30 a.m. and follow the route of the Army of the Potomac’s VI Corps assault to the Confederate earthworks defended by Brig. Gen. James Lane’s North Carolina Confederates.
This tour starts at 6506 Church Road, Petersburg, Virginia 23803 and will last 2 hours and will require roughly 1.5 miles of walking over occasionally uneven terrain. The tour is free and open to the public, however, donations for continued preservation efforts are appreciated.
