It's amazing how well kept and organized this hollowed place is. Every visitor interested in learning the impact of the Civil War in the Fredericksburg area should pay a visit to this cemetery. Highly regarded heroes are buried here.
Honoring a fallen soldier is never a wasted of time. Make the trek and survey the human cost of war.
Look out for the graves of 6 Confederate generals buried here right in town and their stories. Right next to a civilian cemetery containing the graves of prominent Fredericksburg citizens.
Nice to see suitable reverence has been made to honour the dead on both sides of this conflict. And also very surprising to be informed the Confederate graves are looked after and cared for by a local ladies group. Worthy of a short stop.
