Keeping up with past and present happenings in a remarkable small town.
The area near the wall, Maryes Heights, is developed for housing. Trying to visualize what the troops went through that day is, unfortunately, difficult at best. Fredericksburg is a nice place to visit to see what there is of the field and the restored/preserved old town.
I wonder if any Butler people took part in the reenactment.
Folklore in our family was that a family member was in the Pa Union fight at Gettysburg---Hezekiah Patterson---but I didn't hear about Fredericksburg--have to check it out.
I have an ancestor Hezekiah Patterson, my 3rd great grandfather, born about 1842. Is this your same ancestor? I'd be curious to hear about that you know. firstname.lastname@example.org
