The Stone Wall at Fredericksburg

1013 Lafayette Blvd, Fredericksburg VA 22401 (main visitor center)

Portions of the Fredericksburg (1862), Chancellorsville (1863), Wilderness and Spotsylvania (1864) battlefields are preserved in units of this park. Historic structures in the park include Chatham, an 1862 Union headquarters overlooking the city and a small building at Guinea Station where Stonewall Jackson died. The Fredericksburg area, being equally distant from two warring capital cities saw some of the most significant and bloodiest battles of the war.

The main park visitor center (in Fredericksburg) is near the famous stone wall at Marye's Heights defended by Confederates in December 1862. An interpreted self-guided walking tour takes visitors along the wall. Another visitor center is located on the Chancellorsville battlefield near where Stonewall Jackson was wounded.

The Stonewall Jackson Shrine at Guinea Station is open seasonally.

Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville visitor centers open 9 am–5 pm daily. Free.
