Stafford, Virginia

During the Civil War, a railroad station stood on this site. The station consisted of a warehouse, a platform, quartermaster tents, and several sidings. Trains arrived and departed on the hour traveling to and from Aquia Landing. The station witnessed distinguished visitors like President and Mrs. Lincoln, Clara Barton, and Walt Whitman. In 1862, many (10,000 - 12,000) escaped slaves traveled from here to Aquia Landing and freedom.
