... in the area. I will be searching for information on my great-grandfather who was a Civil War soldier. From what I understand, the staff at the Visitors Center will be able to help me trace his movements across the battlefield and follow his footsteps across the modern field. It will be amazing to walk in the footsteps, so to speak, of my ancestor who lived in the mid-1800s & early-1900s . I'm looking forward to seeing what I can find ...
... those were 3 S’s!) If I was going to a country like Haiti after a natural disaster, well, that would be completely different. Haiti is one of the poorest countries, if not THE poorest country in the world today and its government is unstable. Most of the time, I take what the news shows with a grain of salt. They want you to see the devastation because thats what pulls in viewers - I very rarely trust what I see on ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsWingate by Wyndham Fredericksburg
The room is large with a fridge and microwave. Staff is really great. Hurricane Irene skirted the area so we had no power for about 15 hours but staff ran up 4 flights of stairs every time I needed to get my electronic door opened.
