A dedicated site that recognizes our Civil War dead. Do your research in advance or stop by the visor center and pick up a leaflet. There is little on-site information

Well preserved, large Confederate Cemetery in the heart of Historic Fredericksburg, VA. I found it great for a peaceful walk, assuming you have good weather.

Nice visit, loaded with history with burials dating to early 1800's. Quiet oasis away from noise and traffic of downtown Fredericksburg.
