Anson Croman and Civil War Archaeology in Fredericksburg, Virginia
December 14, 2012 § Leave a comment
During recent construction artifacts were found on a a site where 150 years ago Union troops fought and took shelter in the town of Fredericksburg, Virginia.
Anson Croman and the 20th Michigan were in positions south and southwest of the town so the recently discovered artifacts are not theirs. However, they are probably identical to items Anson Croman carried and used.
