This cemetery is so moving and sad. The many many men that lost their lives, the epitaphs were haunting and sad but told of these men's strengths and beliefs.

If your are heading info Fredericksburg or passing by, the civil war cemetery is well worth a stop. The associated small museum has some interesting displays and staff are well-informed. Like all war cemeteries, it's a somber place and so many of the graves are mass ones.

If you are in town visiting the battlefields then this is a must. There are over 3000 soldiers buried here (along with lots of locals) among them are 5 generals. All of the civil war soldiers that are here died in one of the four local battles. They were buried elsewhere and later brought here. There are many "unknowns" but... More

We went on Saturday at sunset, and they were paying tribute to the fallen Confederate soldiers, whose graves were marked with small Confederate battle flags. There were re-enactors color guard and a 21 gun salute followed by "Taps", and they were lighting Lumineers. It's a very interesting cemetery and well worth a visit.

Visited over Memorial Day weekend and every Confederate soldier grave had a Confederate flag. Well maintained graveyard with a statue of a confederate soldier.

In war often the armies move on and civilian farmers or townspeople are left behind to rebuild and bury the dead. Fredericksburg was heavily damaged in the battle fought in the town itself. The Confederate Cemetery was established and is maintained by the Ladies Memorial Association. The private group organized in 1866. The cemetery was dedicated in 1870 after fund... More

We walked thru it but there wasn't anything interesting to see. Nothing meaningful. I thought famous generals were buried there. There were no maps or anything to guide you to anything important.

Very interesting to walk around ands see all the headstones and monuments. Quite a bit of history here. Sad to realize how young these boys were.

What a peaceful and sad place. It is hard to wrap your mind around how many men lost their lives in the Civil War. Most of the men were barely men but merely boys. It is so sad to see all the lives lost North or South. If you like walking around cemeteries or being in a peaceful atmosphere, then... More

If you are into cemeteries, or the confederacy, or history in general, you will enjoy this place. Incredible amount of history, and a fantastic central monument. I personally like the history of cemeteries, as well as the sculptural beauty you can find in the stones. This did not disappoint. I was happy to see that this was a well-tended cemetery,... More
