Not only did this unique place make its mark when abolitionist John Brown staged his raid on the U.S. Arsenal in 1859, setting off a chain of events that resulted in the Civil War, it was also the site of Stonewall Jackson's capture of 12,500 Union soldiers in September 1862. The park is a collection of many small museums created within original buildings. It is part of the Civil War Discovery Trail and has many beautiful hiking trails.
