The New Bern Historical Society is proud to own and maintain the New Bern Battlefield Park. This Hallowed Ground is where nearly one third of the American Civil War Battle of New Bern, North Carolina occurred. The park is in near pristine condition : unmarked by development or agriculture, the “redans” or fighting positions remain as they were a century and a half ago. You can literally walk in the footsteps of young Confederate and Union soldiers who were here on that fateful day : March 14, 1862.
