Last year, the parks commission built a walking tour that included a pathway and signs describing the battle's events.
Parks Commission Chairman Brian Merrett said "This is an important project. We want to do this right." Parks Commission historian Sherman Zavitz described the way it must have been on the hot July 5th day 187 years ago, and a minute of silence followed. Later guided tours were given by re-enactors in period dress.
