Experience the 155th Battle of Fredericksburg anniversary commemoration with the Civil War Trust and the National Park Service no matter where you may be! We will be broadcasting from the battlefield to help you share in this meaningful event and in some of what we have done together.  

On December 12-13, join us on our Facebook page where we will be live at key Fredericksburg sites with special guests, artifacts from the battle, the best photographs and with special access to restricted sites. We’ll cover the famous river crossings urban combat in Fredericksburg, show the key (and usually inacessible) spots on Marye’s Heights, trace the routes of attack on the Slaughter Pen Farm (which we have preserved together!), and see Prospect Hill, Chatham, cemeteries, and more with Civil War Trust staff, park rangers and historians Don Pfanz, Chris Mackowski and National Civil War Museum leader Wayne Motts who will have actual Fredericksburg artifacts on the field that day!
