If you're into history, this is a great visit. Small museum but the grounds are great. The statues commentating important spots, seeing the homes, and then the cemetery all put the battles here into perspective. Definitely sobering. As a part of the National Park service,...More

These moving historical visits were made exceptional by the guides that we had at both locations. They were both so passionate that they went way over the 30 minute tour time. And we were completely enthralled. Kudos to our Park Rangers.

Hiked the south end of Fredericksburg battlefield on a hot day in September. Beautiful country along the Rapahannock river, rolling hills to get the blood pumping. Lost in imagining the horror of the battle, Meade's breakthrough, the gallant Pelham's enfilading fire, Max Gregg's death.

Whatever you interests, history holds the ground here. Two visitor centers and miles of well marked roads and trails lead you through four of the most critical battles of the Civil War: Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, The Wilderness and Spotsylvania Court House. Each battle was pivotal in...More
