I have had the opportunity to visit a lot of National Park Service American Civil War battlefields and sites. I have also had the opportunity to visit a ton of non-National Park Service American Civil War battlefields and sites. This thread is about non-National Park Service American Civil War battlefields and sites........

My favorite non-National Park Service American Civil War battlefields is a tie!

* The Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site near Perryville, Kentucky.

I would have to go with Richmond (the one in Kentucky) and Perryville because both of them have accomplished a great deal with only private and local funds.

Phillip Seyfrit and Company have done a wonderful job with this American Civil War battlefield! The museum at the Rodgers House is top notch.

Louisiana's Mansfield State Historic Site is pretty cool. You can see it, here.

"At noon on April 8, the head of the disorganized Union army (6,400 troops) was confronted by the Confederate army (10,500 troops) in battle formation. The Union troops quickly formed a line of battle along a rail fence and a ridge known as Honeycutt Hill. On orders from Taylor, General Alfred Mouton's Division charged the rail fence. Mouton was killed leading the attack, but French born General C. J. Polignac, along with other Confederate forces, continued the attack and overwhelmed the Union line."

I believe the owner of that site failed to renew the domain.
