Changing the Course of the War

On the forests and fields of Orange and Spotsylvania Counties, and in the streets of Fredericksburg, the Civil War and the future of American society was fundamentally shaped, and each individual engaged was forever altered by his or her involvement. Meet the people--ambitious, humble, loving, or vengeful--follow the paths they trod, read their stories, and explore the places where the nation and its individuals were tested to the core, over on our History and Culture pages.
