2007 Fredericksburg Trip


The trip to Fredericksburg will follow a schedule somewhat like:

Meet at parking lot across from Woodlake AFC @7:30 am.

Load bus and leave by 8:00 am.

Arrive in Fred'brg in time for an artillery program at 10:00 am. OR Battalion formations to watch.

11:30 "Fire in the Streets" a Demonstration of Urban Combat during the Civil War.

12:00 - Infantry program

12-2 pm: Living history scenarios (picket posts, looting, medical demos, trading with the enemy). OUR KIDS ALWAYS LIKED THESE EVENTS.

3:00 pm: Barksdale Retreat - street battle scenario on Marye Street.

3:30 pm: Battle of Marye's Heights right near the battlefield center.

at 1:00 there is a tour of an off site battle, which lasts two hours, but we would have to get the bus driver to drive us there. (I would suggest avoiding this one and staying right on the battlefield grounds).

The Historic Innis House will be open to the public, which does not happen very often.

There is a gift shop and a visitor's center to fill in open slots.
Don't forget to eat and drink.
