“Where the Civil War Raged”
Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Wilderness, and Spotsylvania--this is America's battleground, where the Civil War roared to its bloody climax. No place more vividly reflects the War's tragic cost in all its forms. A town bombarded and looted. Farms large and small ruined. Refugees by the thousands forced into the countryside. More than 85,000 men wounded; 15,000 killed--most in graves unknown.
Probably one of my favorite battleground parks to visit. Any time of year it's pretty scenic. In fall the autumn foliage makes for a stunning backdrop. Great place to drive through, bike through, walk or jog.
