Civil war site with small but very nice museum. Modest entry fee. Well worth the stop.

This was a morning hike on the Interpretive Trail (General Mouton Trail) at Mansfield State Historic Site. First half of trail passes through forest of loblolly pine and water oaks. Second half goes through open field and up a short hill to a rail fence, turning right to end at a collection of battlefield monuments by the roadside.
