  • My quick summary & of course my photos of 4 days in the Fredericksburg area of Virgina. Yeah, I am a history buff.

    Post Civil War monument to a Michigan's regiments bravery crossing this river under fire, at the battle of Fredericksburg, Dec. 1862.

    What most of the desperate men fighting the battle of "The Wilderness" west of Fredericksburg in May 1864 had for their fighting ground view. Confusion, bullets, & forest fires made the whole bloody 2 day fight a nightmare. And at the end of the fight, the newest Union commanding general Grant, sidestepped the Confederate army & went around it towards Richmond & the end of the war, instead of retreating to rebuild his shot-up army. President Lincoln had finally found a general who had more than one battle every 3 months in him.

    The killing ground at Grant's next battle, Spotsylvania, which turned into a 13 day struggle & was bloodier than any Civil War battle. The Union forces charged from the woods behind this sign towards the woods & Confederate trench line at top of photo & actually broke the Confederate trench line. Then 22 hours of hand to hand fighting ensued while the Confederates desperately dug a new trench line in their rear.

    At the end of 13 days of near constant fighting, Grant withdrew from the battlefield & instead of retreating north to refit, marched southeast towards Richmond, so that folks in Fredericksburg can now pay big rewards to recover their lost beagle.

  • @toby

    neebs is quite the artist. I've seen her paintings, quilts and dream catchers. Never knew she had such an eye for photography.



  • @johntp , hey there say, john... i practiced for years with camera, on my kids and scenes in south tex... but, sadly had no good camera at all...

    finally, i got a canon rebel now, with help from social security, and, a tele lens, now... so, i can put years of 'eye skills' into action now... (still learning the tech stuff) ... will put a few new happy pics, in here, soon as i can...

    i hoped so much, to do this for years... even as i finally was able to paint again... (hope this winter i can share more... i will share a photo though, of one art painting here, just a sec... (in next post) here... 🙂

    thank you, johntp!
