Fredericksburg Memorial Day

I have be remiss in posting photos. Below are photos taken at the Fredericksburg National Cemetery at the Memorial Day weekend luminaries. Pictures do not do the event justice, it is incredibly beautiful.  Every half hour Taps was played, it was a moving experience.

My apron is a reproduction of an original patriotic apron by a Union woman during the Civil War.  The original is now on display at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitors Center.  The flag is also a reproduction of a US Civil War flag.  

President Lincoln was also in attendance.

The Memorial Day service at the Fredericksburg National Cemetery had renowned Civil War historian Ed Bearss who was also a decoraref World War II veteran. He put the days events in proper perspective.

At the Memorial Day service with members of the Civil War Civilians of Spotsylvania.

I had the pleasure to meet historian Ed Bearss and had my book autographed.
