    Hilly with lots of trees. Monument and visitor area are full of interesting info from the revolutionary war. No benches on outer perimeter of park. Only towards the inside area.

    The final resting place to +11,500 POWs who died on the 16 British prison ships during the Civil War. It was once the tallest stone Doric column of its kind. So, the Brits built a bigger one. LOL. 😪

    Best running path in the area. Circle around the hill is just about a mile. Try uphill too for an extra challenge.
