South Mountain Battlefield State Park
To commemorate the first Civil War battle to take place in the state of Maryland, the Battle of South Mountain, South Mountain Battlefield State Park was created. The Sate Park is located in the town of Middletown, outside of Frederick, Maryland.
South Mountain Battlefield is incorporated with Washington Monument State Park where visitors can begin their journey to view the battlefield. Unlike many other Civil War battlefields, South Mountain is still largely unprotected and visitors should take care when touring the battlefield.
South Mountain Battlefield State Park provides a unique opportunity to see the Appalachian National Scenic Trail, which intersects the battlefield. Trails are the preferred method of viewing the battlefield with maps available upon request.
South Mountain holds yearly events and re-enactments for visitors to experience what the battle might have been like in 1862.
