I then has an afternoon and visited Fredricksburg battlefield. This has been partly built over but with a nice visitors centre, including useful, orientation film you get a good picture of the battle which took place.
A famous painting of the battle
The famous 'sunken lane'
Confederate guns overlooking the lane from Marye's Heights
More rebel guns at the overlook where Lee commanded the battle
You can then drive to the eastern end of the battlefield at Prospect Hill infamous for the 'slaughter pen' ........it really was madness to attack Fredricksburg where the confederates were dug in and had the advantage of high ground.
The holiday cannon count increases 😀
