Virtual Tour Stop, Advance to Marye's Heights
Many of the Union soldiers marching toward Marye's Heights advanced on George and Hanover Street to this intersection where the streets meet. The soldiers would have been approached in the opposite direction this photo is looking. Note the damage to the buildings. Click here for a walking trail folder to walk this route.
Modern view of the same intersection shown above.
At the intersection of Hanover Street and Kenmore Avenue is a cluster of three interpretive signs.
One of the interpretive signs has photos and text about the damage in the city of Fredericksburg and the battle's effect on the inhabitants of the city.
