Stafford Civil War Park

Posted on 01/20/2014 in misc

Stafford opened this park in 2013, and we finally got a chance to visit today. The park is a small piece of the land used by the Union Army in their winter encampment after the defeat at Fredericksburg in December 1862. Stafford was decimated by the Union occupation. Some would argue the landscape never recovered.

If you are looking for quite and solitude avoid the neighboring Government Island. It is very popular among parents with young children, people with dogs, and parents with young children and dogs. By comparison, we only saw one person at the Civil War Park.
