Exhibit renovations at Chancellorsville Battlefield Visitor Center
The exhibits and film at Chancellorsville Battlefield Visitor Center are closed due to renovation work. We expect to reopen with new exhibits in the spring of 2014. The bookstore and visitor center at Chancellorsville are open daily.
Virtual Tour, Salem Church
Members of the New Salem Church congregation serve as volunteers in manning the old church on weekend afternoons during the summer months. At that time, visitors can go inside the church.
The park has produced two brochures to help understand the fighting around Salem Church. One covers the immediate area around the church and the other is a driving tour for the 2nd Fredericksburg/Salem Church portion of the Chancellorsville Battlefield.
Did You Know?
The Confederate battleline at Fredericksburg stretched for seven miles on a series of hills and ridges west of the town. A five mile drive links the two sectors where fighting occurred. It follows the remains of Confederate earthworks which can be seen from your car.
