Just placed online, for your entertainment and enlightenment, a collection of close to 300 photographs from this past weekend’s program to commemorate the Battle of Fredericksburg.
It was, without a doubt, one of the most powerful reenactments I have ever seen, particularly the crossing of the Rappahanock River on two faithful copies of 19th Century U.S. Army pontoon boats (built over the past two years by the reenactors themselves), while the modern version of the Army constructed a most impressive modern footbridge bridge to facilitate the crossing of the hundreds of Federals who were camped at Ferry Farm.
You will find dozens and dozens of views from the assault against Marye’s Heights --incredibly powerful moments-- and some images from the Sunday morning memorial ceremonies at the City Dock.
All these photographs can be found here: www.zphotos.smugmug.com, then click on the gallery called 12Fredericksburg.
