A beautiful, well-kept cemetery honoring the fallen soldiers of the Confederacy. It is sad to think that 2/3 of the graves here are unmarked so their families never knew what happened to their loved ones. So many lives lost on both sides.................

We spent a warm morning walking though the cemetery. We find old cemeteries to be a spiritual experience. We were most impressed with the history and the people who are honored there in the well kept grounds. You must see this if you are in Fredericksburg.

The cemetery brings the reality of the local battles into perspective. The Second Rebellion cost this area in devastation and loss lives. Entire families lost their homes and loved ones. My great great grandfather fought with the 14th GA. Volunteers in company A. He survived the war and surrendered at Appomattox in April of 1865. His brother Thomas W. Williams... More

We visited the Confederate Cemetery in Fredericksburg on Memorial Day to see the pageantry and the reverence that the reenactors and citizens of this southern city bring on that day. It was wonderful. The marchers in Confederate uniforms and the ladies in their long skirts and parasols took us back in time. The graves are each marked with a stars... More

It was very interesting to see all the graves. The oldest one we found died in 1801. The confederate graves were old, unreadable and/or breaking apart. Looks like the caretakers are trying to repair and/or fix those.

On the trolley tour you will hear about the cemetery. At Memorial Day, the town puts a Confederate flag of each grave. (Flag is not meant as a symbol of hate but a part of the history of the area).

No one should visit Fredericksburg without exploring and understanding its Civil War past. The famous battlefields are only part of a story which, for tens of thousands, ended in graves across the South. The Confederate Cemetery holds the remains of six generals and 3300 Confederate soldiers, over 2200 of whom are unidentified. This is a quiet place close to the... More
