Spotsylvania’s Bloody Angle: “The Toughest Fight Yet”
May 12, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join historians Peter Maugle and Beth Parnicza for an evening walking tour of the Union attack and the soldiers’ experience of the Bloody Angle, the site of Spotsylvania’s most famous and most desperate fighting. Hand to hand combat rocked this small bend in Confederate earthworks for 22 hours in the pouring rain. Meet at Tour Stop 3 on the Spotsylvania Battlefield.
Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park is proud to announce a series of walking tours, living history demonstrations, and a special campfire program to commemorate the 153rd Anniversary of the Battle of Chancellorsville and the 152nd Anniversary of the Battles of the Wilderness and Spotsylvania Court House this May.
Good walking shoes and water are recommended for each walking tour. All programs are free to the public.
