My knowledge of Civil War history was weak, so I appreciated the opportunity to learn more about it while walking on the ground where important battles were fought. We also visited Chatham on this trip.

Historically significant park. Easy to see all parts of this strategic battleground. Take time to see the museum as well as walk the entire grounds. Recommend the tour.

No matter where you go history is around you. Take the time to read the signs. Respect what is around you

There is nothing like walking in the footsteps of history. The lady who runs the bookshop is awesome and a big help. Hire Fredericksburg Tours for a private tour. My wife and I did and had a blast.
