Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania Park Information

Experience this military park that encompasses four major Civil War battlefields and preserves the historic buildings associated with them.

Between Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Wilderness, and Spotsylvania this is the bloodiest landscape in North America. No place more vividly reflects the Civil War's tragic cost, in all its forms. A city bombarded, bloodied, and looted. Farms large and small ruined. Refugees by the thousands forced to the countryside. More than 85,000 men wounded; 15,000 killed most now in graves unknown. The fading scars of battle, the homeplaces of bygone families, and the granite tributes to those who fought still mark these lands. These places reveal the trials of a community and nation, a virtuous tragedy that freed four million Americans and reunited a nation.
