|Could use some help from someone who has visited Fredericksburg more often than me. I was there once, about 7 years ago. It was a terrible day since we foolishly tried to visit Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Wilderness (as well as Salem Church) all in one near 100 degree day. So needless to say, I can't remember much about it, other than Rt. 3 traffic.
While at Fredericksburg, I remember standing with a hill behind me, which contained some artillery. In front was a large field endind with a treeline and a railroad embankment. I remember there was a pyramid shaped monument which I think was to Meade. Does this portion of the field sound familiar to anyone? Is this the area of the slaughter pen?
