“America’s Battleground”: Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park Virtual Program
Join us at the CAST Senior Center every Tuesday afternoon for our free virtual programs! Everyone is welcome to attend, and no preregistration is required. 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 85,000 men wounded; 15,000 killed--most in graves unknown. Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park was established to preserve, protect, interpret, and commemorate the battlefields of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, the Wilderness, and Spotsylvania Court House. We will gain an understanding and appreciation of the Civil War with emphasis on causes, consequences, and impacts on the American people. Join us as we hear the stories related to these places and how they are relevant today.
