      Rangers will lead two extended battlefield hikes. The Morning hike meets at
      the Visitor Center at 9:30 a.m. and it will last until noon (distance is 3.2
      miles). The Afternoon Hike is from 1:30 p.m.- 4:30 p.m. The hike will begin
      in the parking lot across from the National Cemetery and will cover about 3
      miles.
