Leesburg Virginia is a quaint, historic town, located about 40 miles northwest of Washington D.C. at the foot of the Catoctin Mountain and beside the Potomac River. Leesburg Virginia has many historic attractions to see considering this was a very active battlefield area during the Civil War. It is actually in the middle of The Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area which is 175 miles long between Gettysburg Pennsylvania and Monticello in Charlottsville, Virginia. Right in Leesburg Virginia is Ball's Bluff Battlefield Reginal Park where the battle of Ball's Bluff took place in 1861. A must-see site in Leesburg Virginia would be Historic Morven Park. This was the home of World War I governor Westmoreland Davis. The restored Greek mansion contains artifacts that were brought home by Governor Davis from around the world that includes a 15th century Persian tapestry. On this property is the Winmill Carriage Collection that has on display over 50 restored horse-drawn carriages. These include Grace Kelly's carriage from The Swan, and Tom Thumb's carriage. Also at this location is the Museum of Hounds and Hunting. In addition to all of this, there are 3 acres of boxwood gardens that visitors will love. Replicas of Confederate camp huts are also located here. Leesburg Virginia is also home to many wineries. These are in and around the Leesburg area. After visiting the many battlefields and historic spots, it could be a relaxing day at Leesburg Virginia just visiting the wineries and tasting a few of the delicious wines.
