Visit the battlefield where the Civil War reached its climax.

On this battlefield, 15,000 soldiers were killed and many farms were destroyed. The Confederate army positioned themselves so well that they won the Battle of Fredericksburg, which killed morale on the Union side. This brutal battle occurred during a frigid winter in December 1862 and was lead by General Burnside (Confederate) and General Lee (Union).

The grounds are open from sunrise to sunset and have several walking paths and hiking trails to explore. Many people take the National Cemetery Loop Trail which leads to the cemetery where the Civil War soldiers were laid to rest. Lee Hill trail takes you up to Robert E. Lee's command post and can be accessed from the road if you are taking the driving tour. While you're here, stop by the Chatham Manor, a historic home that served as a hospital during the Battle of Fredericksburg. Three of the U.S. Presidents have set foot inside the manor, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln. Fredericksburg Battlefield is a place to learn more about the Civil War, stop by if you're anywhere near Northeastern Virginia.
