I'll vote for Chickamauga too!  Been there twice.  Despite the fact that it has a highway going through the middle of it there are plenty of places that are out of the way, serene and peaceful.

But my experience has been that if you avoid the paved "battlefield tour" and set off on foot that every battlefield of any size has plenty of serenity.  I remember one visit to Antietam where I was following the route of the 30th Ohio (my wife's gggfather was in this unit).  They crossed at a ford upstream from Burnside's Bridge and the path to that ford was as beautiful and peaceful as any place I have ever been on a battlefield.
