Emerging Civil War is excited to join with the Civil War Trust and the National Park Service next week to commemorate the 155th anniversary of the battle of Fredericksburg—and thanks to Facebook Live, you can join in no matter where you are.
The Trust will be broadcasting LIVE from the battlefield to help you share in this meaningful event, and ECW is co-hosting!
On December 12-13, we will be LIVE at key Fredericksburg sites with special guests, artifacts from the battle, the best photographs, and with special access to restricted sites. We’ll cover the famous river crossings, urban combat in Fredericksburg, show the key—and usually inaccessible—spots on Marye’s Heights, trace the routes of attack on the Slaughter Pen Farm, and see Prospect Hill, Chatham, cemeteries, and more. Join Civil War Trust staff, park rangers, historians Don Pfanz, Chris Mackowski, and Dan Davis, and National Civil War Museum leader Wayne Motts, who will have actual Fredericksburg artifacts on the field that day.

Whether you are a novice or a full-on history nerd, expect to learn things you didn’t know before. Registration is not required for this event. Just log-in to the Civil War Trust Facebook page on December 12-13 starting at 10:00 am ET!
