Fredericksburg, VA

I flew into DC this past weekend to see Chris. He picked me up at the airport and we drove to Fredericksburg, VA. It was a cute historical town.
On Friday and Saturday we ate at Brock's Seafood and Steak. It was so yummy! We stayed downtown at the Marriott and we shopped Saturday morning. We mostly looked at antiques and Civil War stuff. 

 Saturday afternoon we went to one of the Battlefields in Virginia. It was pretty awesome!
 This rock wall is where the North and South battled it out.

 This is the river that many Union soldiers lived on for 3 months

 This cemetery holds 20,000 soldiers

I wish we had more time to visit more Civil War sites but one weekend is not enough time. It was freezing cold. It actually started snowing on us later that evening. When we fly up for Chris' graduation at the FBI NA we are hoping to make it into a longer vacay to see more history.
