James Madison’s Montpelier Civil War Trail

Walk in the footsteps of McGowan's Brigade on the 1-mile Montpelier Civil War Trail, which winds through the archaeological remains of a Confederate winter camp. The trail also connects to the farm of George Gilmore, who was born into slavery at Montpelier around 1810 and, after Emancipation, became a farmer and landowner, building his cabin on the site of an abandoned Confederate hut. The best way to experience Montpelier’s Civil War Trail is through one of our guided walking tours.
