Due to Fredericksburg’s location on the Rappahannock River, the city originated in 1728 as an important port for the surrounding counties. Throughout the Revolutionary Period, many prominent American figures like the Washington family, James Monroe, John Paul Jones, George Weedon, and Hugh Mercer called the city their home. Thomas Jefferson wrote the renowned Virginia Statue of Religious Freedom in Fredericksburg. Although most of the towns industry and development can be attributed to the work of highly skilled African slaves that inhabited the area. They worked for the plantations, mercantile businesses, iron and mining industries, blacksmiths, and cobblers. During the Civil War, Fredericksburg hosted a number of pivotal battles due to its strategic location between the Confederate capital city, Richmond, and the Union capital city, Washington DC. The location today remains an important halfway point between the cities, hosting 1.5 million tourists and travelers each year.
