When you set foot inside Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania County Battlefields National Military Park, you walk the bloodiest landscape in North America. Two major Civil War armies clashed in and around Fredericksburg in four pivotal battles within an 18-month span, resulting in over 100,000 casualties.
Each battlefield features its own driving tour and multiple walking trails. The park offers guided walking tours in the warmer months--usually on weekends in the spring and fall and daily in the summer. Check our Operating Hours and Seasons for information on hours and programs. This page will also provide the hours for visiting any of the park's historic structures.
