Such a sad time in our history revisited by historians in this tour. We enjoyed the film presentation as well as the museum. Great place for families to experience history.

Knowledge and not denying America's past is very important. We cannot bury our past and so must keep it alive to learn from and this is a place that helps remember the battles and those who died. It also shows the beauty can return and...More

Enjoyed seeing the monument, but more so the explanation of the statue behind the story. Hard to realize a burial spot for only part of a person.

This is a most moving statue when you know the history of it. Take time to explore the entire area when visiting this monument.

Learned a little about the history of Fredericksburg, Virginia and our Nations battles. How the battles have shaped our country as for what we are today.

We've got an AWESOME one in Lee Circle in New Orleans, but it's about to be destroyed because of idiots. BUT... Informative, great for history buffs and nice to know something will stay even though the PC Police is trying to destroy American History.

The exhibits are very well presented. We got there late in the day so only got to go through the museum part. You get to choice a soldier and follow him through the war to hear his accounts of what happened and what they were...More
