THE GHOSTS OF FREDERICKSBURG TOURS

 

The original witches hanging tree does not exist anymore, and the deep crevasse where they tossed the dead bodies of the poor wretches has closed in upon itself.

Ghosts of Fredericksburg Tours

More History, More Battles, More Ghosts!

From a past that stretches back to pre-Colonial times, to the horror of being the focal point of four major Civil War battles that claimed over 100,000 casualties, it is no wonder that Fredericksburg has been called the most haunted city, per capita, in the entire United States.

Combining history with mysterious tales of the still lurking dead, costumed guides conduct 80 minute, comfortably-paced, candlelight walking tours filling the evenings with folklore and ghostly tales.

Join us for the most unique tour available in night-time Fredericksburg.

Our tour headquarters is on the second floor of "The Chimneys" building located at 623 Caroline St. We are open on Fridays and Saturdays from 2PM - 8PM. Stop by to say hello and browse through our unique selection of books on the paranormal and other ghostly topics!

Fredericksburg has had more history and more battles than any other small town in America. With a past that stretches back to pre-Colonial times and a Civil War legacy of four major battles that claimed over 100,000 casualties, it is no wonder that Fredericksburg has been called the most haunted city, per capita, in the entire United States.

Now, armed with tales of the undead, our knowledgeable guides will conduct you on an hour and twenty minute tour through sections of town that have seen and heard the spirit remnants from the 18th Century of a phantom harpist and singer, of the child who died in a fall from a balcony, and of the frustrated lover who still strolls along what locals have named the “Ghost Walk” once every seven years.

Caroline Street

Walk down darkened Caroline Street and hear stories of long dead Fredericksburg residents who still inhabit the many historic buildings, of bizarre “renovations” that could only be done from beyond the grave, and of ghostly footprints that suddenly appeared in a locked room, then, just as suddenly, disappeared.


Pass the historic tavern where the original owner still stalks the hall with heavy boots, where a mysterious “floating glow” is witnessed in the tavern room, and where someone unseen pulls upon the skirts of the women who work there.

See the modern restaurant in an historic home where a woman allegedly hanged herself in shame after being exposed as a Yankee collaborator. Though dead, she is still fated to walk the halls blowing out candles, moving silverware and appearing out of nowhere to stunned diners.

And finally return past the church where the apparitional “Woman in White” was first seen in 1858, and made her presence known once again, just a year ago.


Join us for the most unusual tours you will find in Fredericksburg at night!

Excerpt from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fredericksburg is an independent city in the U.S. Commonwealth of Virginia, 50 miles south of Washington, D.C., and 55 miles north of Richmond, Virginia. As of the 2000 census, the city had a population of 19,279. The Bureau of Economic Analysis combines the city of Fredericksburg with neighboring Spotsylvania County for statistical purposes. This city is a part of the Washington-Baltimore Metropolitan Area.

Located on the Rappahannock River near the head of navigation at the fall line, Fredericksburg developed as the frontier of colonial Virginia shifted west out of the coastal plain. The land on which the city was founded was part of a tract patented in 1671. The Virginia General Assembly established a fort on the Rappahannock in 1676, just below the present-day city. In 1714, Lt. Gov. Alexander Spotswood sponsored a German settlement called Germanna on the Rapidan River, a tributary of the Rappahannock upstream from the future site of the city, and led an expedition westward over the Blue Ridge Mountains in 1716.

As interest in the frontier grew, the colonial assembly responded by forming a new county named Spotsylvania (after the governor) in 1720 and establishing Fredericksburg in 1728 as a port for the county, of which it was then a part. Named for Frederick, Prince of Wales, son of King George II and father of King George III, the colonial town's streets bore the names of members of the royal family. The county court was moved to Fredericksburg in 1732 and the town served as county seat until 1780 when the courthouse was moved closer to the county center. Fredericksburg was incorporated as a town, with its own court, council, and mayor, in 1781, and received its charter as an independent city in 1879. The city adopted the city manager/council form of government in 1911.

The city has close associations with George Washington, whose family moved to the Ferry Farm on the Rappahannock opposite Fredericksburg in 1738. Washington's mother Mary later moved to the city, and his sister Betty lived at Kenmore, a plantation house then outside the city. Other significant early residents include the Revolutionary War generals Hugh Mercer and George Weedon, naval war hero John Paul Jones, and future U.S. president James Monroe.

During the 19th century Fredericksburg sought to maintain its sphere of trade but with limited success, promoting the development of a canal on the Rappahannock and construction of a turnpike and plank road to bind the interior country to the market town. By 1837, a north-south railroad, which became the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad, linked the town to Richmond, the state capital, but a much-needed railroad joining the town to the farming region to the west remained unfinished until after the Civil War.


During the American Civil War, Fredericksburg gained strategic importance due to its location midway between Washington and Richmond, the opposing capitals of the Union and the Confederacy. During the battle of Fredericksburg, December 11-15, 1862, the town sustained significant damage due to bombardment and looting at the hands of Union forces. A second battle was fought in and around the town on May 3, 1863, in connection with the Chancellorsville campaign (April 27 - May 6, 1863). The battles of the Wilderness and Spotsylvania Court House were fought nearby in May 1864.

After the war, Fredericksburg recovered its former position as a center of local trade and slowly grew beyond its prewar boundaries. The University of Mary Washington was founded here in 1908 as the State Normal and Industrial School for Women. Adopting the name of Mary Washington College in 1938, the college was for many years associated with the University of Virginia as a women’s liberal arts college. The college became coeducational in 1970 and is now independent of UVa. A separate campus for graduate and professional studies is located in suburban Stafford County.

Today Fredericksburg is the commercial hub of a rapidly growing region in north central Virginia. Despite recent decades of suburban growth, reminders of the area’s past abound. A 40-block national historic district embraces the city’s downtown area and contains more than 350 buildings dating to the 18th and 19th centuries. Notable homes include Kenmore, home of Washington’s sister Betty, and the Mary Washington House, where his mother spent her final years. The historic district draws crowds of tourists to Fredericksburg during the summer months.

Other historic buildings and museums include the late 18th century Rising Sun Tavern, Hugh Mercer apothecary shop, and the James Monroe law office museum. Significant public buildings include the 1852 courthouse designed by James Renwick, whose works include the Smithsonian Institution’s castle building in Washington and St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City, and the 1816 town hall and market house. The latter building now houses a local history museum and cultural center.

Nearby points of interest include George Washington Birthplace National Memorial, located 38 miles to the east in Westmoreland County, and the Ferry Farm historic site in Stafford County where Washington spent his boyhood across the river from Fredericksburg. The historic community of Falmouth lies across the Rappahannock to the north and includes the historic house Belmont, home of American artist Gari Melchers.

The area’s Civil War battles are commemorated in Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania County Battlefields Memorial National Military Park. Formed by an act of Congress in 1927, the national military park preserves portions of the battlefields of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, the Wilderness, and Spotsylvania Court House. The Fredericksburg National Cemetery, also part of the park, is located on Marye’s Heights on the Fredericksburg battlefield and contains more than 15,000 Union burials from the area’s battlefields.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fredericksburg,_Virginia

Fredericksburg was laid out in 1728 near the falls of the Rappahannock River on the site of what had once been an Indian village. It was the home town of the Lees and the Washingtons. thomas Jefferson, George Mason and James Monroe were also familiar faces in the town.

The Rappahannock River was the military border during the four years of the Civil War. Thus, Fredericksburg saw the worst of the war from Marye's Heights in December 1862 to Chancellorsville, to the Wilderness, and Spotsylvania Courthouse.

Chancellorsville
Chancellorsville - General Joseph Hooker crossed the Rappahannock in April 1963 to get to General Robert E. Lee's flank. Lee split his army and sent Stonewall Jackson to attack Hooker's right flank. this was Lee's greatest victoyr but Stonewall Jackson was mortally wounded.

Fredericksburg - General Ambrose Burnside crosssed the Rappahannock and battled through the streets. They were confronted by Confederates on Marye's Heights and in the Sunken Road. It was nearly a massacre.

Spotsylvania Courthouse - the Confederate Army held off the Union Army here at the Bloody Angle.

The wilderness - In 1864 the Army of the Potomac under General Ulysses S. Grant once again crossed the Rappahannock . He tried to push his army around Lee's right.

Battle of Fredericksburg Commemoration Committee

On November 7, 1862, as an early snowfall covered on the Union camps near Warrenton, VA, Maj. Gen. Ambrose E. Burnside received news that he would replace George B. McClellan as commander of the Army of the Potomac. A week later, the Federals began their march toward Fredericksburg, establishing camps on Stafford Heights and along the Rappahannock at Falmouth VA.


On November 18-19th, Longstreet departed Culpeper for Fredericksburg, and established camp on the heights west of town; Jackson arrived on December 1-3, and deployed downriver from Fredericksburg.


Burnside formulated attack plans in early December, including use of pontoon boats to cross the River and occupy the town.


At dawn on December 11, Union engineers began constructing the pontoon bridges. Facing resistance from Barksdale's Mississippians, they sent over several units to clear the town of the remaining Confederates. The city was also bombarded by artillery, which ignited several fires and destroyed much of the town.


On December 12 the Union Army crossed the bridges and formed up in town. Union soldiers looted that evening the town.
At 8:30 a.m., December 13th, the attack began. When the battle ended, 1,284 Federals had been killed; 9,600 wounded, and 1,769 captured/missing. Confederates lost 608 killed; 4,116 wounded; 653 captured or missing.
Defeated and demoralized, the Army of the Potomac withdrew to Falmouth to spend the winter in the Union's "Valley Forge".
