Historic Fredericksburg free pdf Excerpt from Historic Fredericksburg: The Story of an Old Town Fredericksburg Sprawls at the foot of the hills where the scented summer winds sweep over it out of the valley of brawling waters above. The grass grows lush in the meadows and tangles in the hills that almost surround it. In spring the flowers streak the lowlands, climb on the slopes, and along the ridges- and Autumn makes fair colors in the trees, shading them in blood crimson, weathered bronze, and the yellow of sunsets. Over its shadowed streets hangs the haze of history. It is not rich nor proud, because it has not sought- it is quiet and content, because it has sacrificed. It gave its energy to the Revolution. It gave its heart to the Confederacy- and, once when it was thundered at by guns, and red flames twisted in its crumbling homes, it gave its soul and all it possessed to the South. It never abated its loyalty nor cried out its sorrows. In Fredericksburg, and on the battlefields near it, almost thirty thousand men lay on the last couch in the shadowy forests and - we think - heard Her voice calling and comforting them. To the wounded, the Old Town gave its best, not visioning the color of their uniforms, nursing them back to life: And, broken and twisted and in poverty, it began to rebuild itself and gather up the shattered ideals of its dead past. Out of its heart has grown simple kindness- out of its soul simple faith. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
