History & History Related Items

Fredericksburg history:

Fredericksburg is an independent city, not affiliated with any county. It is included with Spotsylvania County because of its location only.

Here is a history page for Spotsylvania County. This history page is for Fredericksburg.

Fredericksburg's location near the falls of the Rappahannock River guided its growth through the years. It was a favored fishing and hunting area for the local Indians. It rapidly became a busy river port and by 1728, it was an official inland port, particularly for the transport of the local tobacco crop.

Because of its location halfway between the two capitals - Washington, DC and Richmond, Virginia, Fredericksburg took a bad beating during the Civil War.
