The Fredericksburg Expedition Guide is the ultimate way to explore the battlefield of Fredericksburg. It includes 3 components:

Battlefield Audio Tour
This walking tour will transport you back in time to the afternoon of December 13, 1862, when seven Union infantry divisions threw themselves at the Confederate defenses along the Sunken Road at the base of Marye's Heights. Available as a download to your smartphone (available for iPhone and Android), the tour provides you with Confederate, Union, and civilian perspectives of the battle. The mobile tour also features augmented reality, a mobile technology that lets you use your phone's camera to take pictures standing next to many of the Civil War generals. You also get access to the virtual tour version of the tour.
The illustrated guidebook complements the audio tour, helping you to visualize the battlefield as it appeared in 1862. Filled with information about Civil War tactics, weaponry, and trivia, the book is a keepsake that will be used many times after you return home.
