As others have noted, the cemetary is part of the Fredricksburg battlefield walking tour. You can just visit the cemetary if you like, but I recommend the whole walking tour because understanding the battle puts the cemetary in perspective. Very sobering. Highly recommended.

A great cemetery where the battle actually played out. These cemeteries are always nice for a stroll.

The cemetery is located right next to the battlefield. It is a large cemetery on a hill, with sweeping views of the city. The cemetery itself is interesting with some unique signs, headstones and statues.

This national cemetery is adjacent to the Fredericksburg Battlefield. It contains thousands of graves of Union soldiers who died in battles fought throughout the region, most of whom are unidentified. It's very sobering and an impressive monument to those who fought and died.

The cemetery is next to the Fredericksburg Battlefield Visitor Center. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. There is a self guided tour - brochures are available at the visitor center. There are many monuments and Confederate artillery among the graves.
