Touring Fredericksburg Va

Steve and I took a little day trip to Fredericksburg, Va. with my sister Lynn and fiance' Randy to tour the old town and the battlefield.

The battle of Fredericksburg, 13 Dec 1862 is remembered as one of the greatest Union defeats of the civil war.

In the streets of Fredericksburg, Union and Confederate troops fought the civil wars first urban combat.

At the visitors center we watched a 20 minute movie and then took the walking tour down the sunken road and the cemetery.  Was a little chilly and overcast.   A nice walk afterwards in the old town of Fredericksburg with a bite at Sammy T's - great food and some window shopping. 

This was a very good model that was on display I took with my camera that depicts aftermath of the fighting
Looks like I took a picture of a picture,  but it's  not, it is a model.
