Assault on Mayre's Heights Walking Tour

Fredericksburg VA

Description

Follow a Union Brigade as it leaves the city center of Fredericksburg and charges the Confederate fortified position on Marye’s Heights! The Battle of Fredericksburg was one of the most compelling battles and one of the true milestones in the Civil War. It saw the most resounding Confederate victory in the east by Robert E. Lee and one of the most disastrous moments in the Lincoln administration. Most of the battlefield today is in the old colonial city or lies under a neighborhood built after the war which makes it even more crucial to have a local guide.
