Before you looms Marye's Heights, a key point in the two major Civil War battles. At the base of the heights, bordered by a stone wall, lies the Sunken Road. In December 1862 Confederate troops standing in the road repelled repeated Union assaults. Five months later, during the Chancellorsville Campaign, Union troops again attacked Marye's Heights. This time they succeeded in taking it.

Begin your visit to this historic ground at the Fredericksburg Battlefield Visitor Center. Then take a leisurely one-hour walk down Sunken Road and up onto Marye's Heights. After completing your walk, take time to travel Lee Drive and visit Chatham, two other units of the Fredericksburg Battlefield. Three other battlefields - Chancellorsville, Wilderness, and Spotsylvania Court House - are also within easy driving distance.
