ABOUT "Ghosts of Fredericksburg Tours"
From its Colonial heritage to the horror of being the focal point of four major Civil War battles, Fredericksburg has more history, more battles, and more ghosts than any other city in America. Combining history with mysterious tales of the still lurking dead, costumed guides conduct 90 minute, comfortably-paced, candlelight walking tours filling the evenings with folklore and stories spawned when 100,000 fell in the fighting in and around the town.
Suitable for all guests and families (HALLOWEEN FUN)
