Sailor's Creek Battlefield Historical State Park will reduce public visitation hours, due to a reduction in staff availability. The changes go into effect April 1 until further notice.

The purpose of Sailor's Creek Battlefield Historical State Park is to preserve the cultural landscape as it was in 1865, and to provide the historic setting to tell the story of the last major battle of the Civil War in Virginia before the surrender of Robert E. Lee's Army at Appomattox Courthouse, and its impact on the citizens of Southside Virginia.
