My G_G_ Uncle Pvt. William S. Boyette NC 1st Cav. (9 State Troops) Co. I is buried in this city, along with 50 other Confederate Soldiers underneath a paved parking lot! This city spent thousands of tax dollars in court to remove a marker, that was approved by this city to honor these honorable Southern Men!
God forgive me for what I'm thinking!
Tears For The Cause, our gracious host, Dan Boyette thanks all concerned for this wondrous occasion, and welcomes everyone to his home at any time day or night.
Courthouse dig reveals house destroyed in Battle of Fredericksburg
YANKS HID IN HOME’S CELLARBY CLINT SCHEMMER
Call it “Building X.”
What remains of it lies, buried and long forgotten until now, beside today’s Fredericksburg City Hall where a new courthouse will soon rise.
Now, thanks to intense scrutiny by archaeologists and local researchers in recent weeks, you can add this once-substantial row house to the casualties of the Battle of Fredericksburg.
The Civil War’s most lopsided Confederate victory, won 150 years ago this December, not only killed or wounded nearly 18,000 men, it erased the brick structure from the town’s landscape.
