America's Battleground

Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Wilderness and Spotsylvania - this is America's battleground, where the Civil War roared to its bloody climax. No place more vividly reflects the War's tragic cost in all its forms. A town bombarded and looted. Farms large and small ruined. Refugees by the thousands forced into the countryside. More than 85000 men wounded; 15000 killed - most in graves unknown. - NPS
