Great Bridge Battlefield Historic Park
CHESAPEAKE -- A ribbon cutting ceremony opened the new Great Bridge Battlefield park to the public on Sunday.
The park is located next to the Great Bridge Bridge, on the site of the historic Battle of Great Bridge in 1775.
That battle was the first land battle of the Revolutionary War.
Mayor Alan Krasnoff and former mayor Bill Ward were both in attendance.
The city has plans for a visitor's center as well.
