No NPS, No Problem – Pamplin Historical Park

Emerging Civil War

It is with great pleasure that we are able to conclude the “No NPS, No Problem” series with a site that likely would not exist but for the National Park Service. Not only have many of the major players in the founding of Pamplin Historical Park back in the early 1990’s come from an NPS background, the battlefield itself is the culmination of the campaign that gripped the city of Petersburg in the last ten months of the war—one whose major sites are currently preserved by Petersburg National Battlefield. After understanding the logistical behemoth at City Point, the shocking tragedy of the Crater, the engineering marvels at Forts Wadsworth and Fisher, the desperation at Fort Stedman, and the opportunity opened at Five Forks, a visitor truly appreciates the stakes and impact of the battlefield at Pamplin Historical Park—the location where the Union army finally broke through the Confederate position.
