Travel Tips for Spotsylvania

Visit the local civil war...

by saitta

Visit the local civil war battle sites and downtown Fredericksburg. Spotsylvania is about a 15 minute drive from Fredericksburg, VA, and is about halfway between Richmond and Washington DC. It is a small, somewhat rural community with all of the benefits of a small town, but close enough to big cities to be exciting. Williamsburg is roughly an hour and half drive, there are mountains, rivers, and lakes close by, and downtown Fredericksburg offers antique shopping. A new mall, Central Park, recently opened nearby offering a variety of stores and restaurants. My best memory of Spotsylvania is sitting on my porch at night looking at the stars.

For the Unusual....

The Pear Tree

Great little gift shop that sells wonderful, exotic soaps that are pretty much non-allergenic, unique childrens toys, as well as jewelry and other fun stuff. Don't come here expecting Civil War remnants or souvenirs, as they don't exist.

They have a small cafe that serves exoctic teas and coffee, as well as food.

Very close to the Confederate Cemetery on Court House Rd.

The Confederate Cemetery

by zanzooni

"Stepping back in time..."

I pass this cemetery almost daily. A 7-11 is now in close proximity to this memorial for the brave men who came from several southern states to fight for their beliefs.

This is located in "downtown" Spotsylvania. This is truly a one-blink-town, and your outta here.

I shudda moved the pick up truck out of the way..kinda blows the moment..ah, well...maybe I'll go back and re-shoot this one.

"History stands here"

This is at the entrance of the cemetery. It's a little overgrown here at this sign. Wished the writing had come as clear as the one in my folder. If anyone is interested in any of these photos, I will send you them from my saved file.

This sign has actually been removed.

"The lost ones...."

The bodies were picked up off the battlefield at the courthouse and interred here. The interesting things are the designated areas for the soldiers belonging from each state. This is shot from the NC area that is on the left hand side just as you enter the cemetery.

"The Flags"

Many of the tombstones had these flags. They were weather beaten and appeared to be placed there some time in the 70's..still in pretty good shape.

"In Rememberance"

This is an example of the monuments that are scattered here.

"Who were these guys?"

No one knows...never can figure that one out...how can you not know? Well, forensic technology has come a long way.

"Erected by the daughters of the Civil War"

This says it all.

"The Solitude reigns"

I have taken a multitude of pictures this life time, capturing still life, and real life, and I would have to say this picture has to be one of my favorites. I am always looking for the interplay of light and dark, and this one captures it the best.
