civil war battlefields

Virginia was a pretty awful place during the American Civil War. In particular the area of Fredericksburg, which had four major battles happen in and around the city. We spent some time today wandering along some of these sites. Like this one:

I took some more photos that you check see here.

On a side note, I’ve noticed that most of the buildings in this area have brick exteriors. Even the new construction that we’ve seen. Maybe helps explain the price of housing out here…
