Fredericksburg

I know. I know. It’s been awhile since I’ve last posted. I was sick with a weird chest, throat and nose virus and then I spent some time with family in Massachusetts. December has been a busy month and it’s not even halfway over. Sheesh.

Irish Brigade Flag

Today is the anniversary of the Union attack on Confederate-held Marye’s Heights, Fredericksburg, VA. At the homestead, we are flying the Irish Brigade flag, a Union brigade involved in the battle. Check out this scene from Gods and Generals about the action between the Irish Brigade’s and the Georgia Irish Brigade during the battle. It breaks your heart.
