Illuminati Incrediable

The Illuminati is an incredible event to experience. A bugler played Taps and the crowd came to a silence pause. Very impressive.

Just too many number of graves due to the great number of dead soldiers in the Union as in the Confederated side.

The welcome center/museum provides you with info & knowledgeable rangers. If you are a history buff, the walking tour provides just enough information to ensure you walk & appreciate the entire tour. The lower walking portion is a mix of small gravel & the upper portion (Marye Heights) is paved/covered walking surface. Wide enough, safe & gradual enough for all... More

This is part of the self-guided walking tour at the Fredericksburg Battlefield visitor center. Very somber to see the number of dead buried here, so far from theur homes.

Near the entrance to the cemetery is signage that explains the cemetery and nearby is a visitor center that explains the Civil War history of Fredericksburg. This area was ravaged by battles. Civilians as well as soldiers died.

Walking through the cemetery and understanding the impact of the battle that accounts for the bodies here, along with the magnitude of the gravestones, leads one to be reverent, reflective, and humbled by anyone that fought for the country that we live in today!

Arrived at this cemetery at the end of the Sunken Road walking tour. It is beautiful and peaceful here. However, it is overwhelming to realize how many unidentified soldiers are buried here, sometimes as many as 5 per plot. We spent time walking and reading the different markers.

Stopped by the cemetery at the end of sunken road walking tour. Interesting to see all the unlabeled graves. My son stated "it hurts my heart to see all these graves". If you hope to get a view of town, no luck. Too many trees. Chantham has the view.
