New Civil War trail adds to Pamplin Historical Park

PETERSBURG, Virginia — The Civil War Trust and Pamplin Historical Park have partnered to create a new walking trail to the Jones Farm battlefield of March 25, 1865.

This new eight-tenths mile path connects Pamplin Historical Park’s existing Headwaters Trail with a pristine section of surviving earthworks from the battle. This important but little-known engagement influenced the Sixth Corps assaults a week later at the Breakthrough battle of April 2, 1865.

The trust and the park dedicated the new Jones Farm Loop Trail on March 31 at the park’s annual anniversary event commemorating the Petersburg Breakthrough battle that led to the end of the Civil War.
