It is a nice piece of history here. Sadly, it is only open on certain days, and the area around the church was not preserved very well being at a very busy intersection.

The brick church on busy route 3 doesn't do this site justice. I sits at a busy intersection and the traffic is a distraction. This site between Chancellorsville and Fredericksburg a busy civil war hospital and amputation site.

We stopped to look at this Church as it's part of the Civil War sites around Fredericksburg. Could only look in the windows and walk around the building, but still very interesting.

We visited the church and was able to walk around the outside and see what damage was done. The church had been broken into, therefore it was under repairs and we could not go inside. I'm glad police caught the person who broke into the...More

You can only view this from the outside of the building read up on the plaques that R around the building. Interesting on where it stands to what now stands around it. But it is very interesting to say the least.

When we were there, the only thing to see was the exterior of the church. There is a sign that describes the battle that occurred but nothing else.
