So what kind of role in history did your home town have? I thought it would be interesting to talk about our home towns and how they took part in the history of the world. I'll start. My home town is Fredericksburg, Virginia. Most of Fredericksburg is a historical district. Famous men from George Washington (who's home in Ferry Farms is only 5 minutes from my mom's house) and Thomas Jefferson to General Lee and Stonewall Jackson came through the town. One of the greatest Confederate battles of the Civil War took place in Fredericksburg, where Gen. Lee was able to hold off several waves of Union troops at Marye's Heights. Last fall I went through and photographed one of the battle sites. To this day you can see the bullet holes in the trees. One of the historical sites in town is called the Rising Sun Tavern, a place where people like George Washington use to "hang out" so to speak. Although it's been restored and updated with electricity, etc, it's a strange feeling to know that you're walking around in a building where some of the greatest figures in American history once sat around a fireplace and talked.
