Located on the site of the April 2, 1865 "Breakthrough," the battle that ended the Petersburg Campaign and led to the evacuation of the Confederate capital at Richmond, Pamplin Historical Park's 422 acre-campus features four award-winning museums with interactive exhibits, four historic homes, battlefield trails, costumed living history presentations, guided tours, as well as shopping facilities. The Park is also the home of Civil War Adventure Camp, where citizens of the 21st century can experience life as a Civil War soldier.
