First Deep Bottom Battlefield

Located on the outskirts of Richmond, the July 28, 1864 First Deep Bottom battlefield features heavily forested terrain, broken by cultivated farm fields, thus retaining much of its wartime character. However, much of this land along the north side of Long Bridge Road west of Gravel Hill Church is still in private hands.  Please respect posted signs when visiting this battlefield.
