On our way home from Williamsburg we stopped in Fredericksburg, Virginia to walk The Sunken Road. We have a family member who was mortally wounded at the Battle of Fredericksburg who served in the 81st Pennsylvania. This town is really beautiful and so full of significance for us. The Sunken Road is a breathtaking site to see and when you realize how huge, dramatic and traumatic this battle was it is really something to experience. The Civil War history to be remembered in this town is really eerily phenomenal. What a tragic battle during the War Between the States. This is a place I really think should be taken in by seeing it in person. Again, all the rangers here are fabulous and extremely helpful. We really enjoyed our time here.
