2019 Heritage Award Recipients


Fredericksburg Confederate Cemetery and the Ladies Memorial Association

The Fredericksburg Confederate Cemetery , at Amelia Street and Washington Avenue, was established by the Ladies’ Memorial Association of Fredericksburg, organized May 10, 1866. It is owned and maintained by the Ladies’ Memorial Association of Fredericksburg, was dedicated in May of 1870 to the 3,553 Confederates who were killed on four area battlefields and reinterred here.

They came from fourteen Southern states. Those whose identities are unknown rest under the massive Monument to the Confederate Dead. The others are buried in individual graves with stones of Georgia marble. On this spot the Association held one of the earliest Memorial Day observances in the country. As it has for nearly 150 years, this tradition continues annually at 10 a.m. on Memorial Day, the last Monday in May.

Central Virginia Battlefield Trust

The Central Virginia Battlefields Trust (CVBT) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of sacred, historic battlefields in Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, the Wilderness and Spotsylvania Court House areas. Incorporated in 1996, CVBT has helped preserve more than 1,200 acres of historic battlefield terrain, adopting our motto, "Dirt and Grass."

In addition to purchasing land, the CVBT mission includes advocacy for battlefield preservation. They work constructively with local governments in the spirit of mutual benefit and cooperation. They are proud of the positive partnerships cultivated with landowners, preservation organizations, and local governments over the years.

Central Virginia Battlefields Trust remains proactive, with several ongoing battlefield preservation projects and negotiations, and with a continuing focus on, and commitment to, their mission of battlefield preservation.

Friends of Wilderness Battlefield

The Friends of Wilderness Battlefield (FoWB) assists the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park (FRSP) in its efforts to preserve the Wilderness Battlefield in Spotsylvania and Orange Counties. FRSP includes four major battlefields: Wilderness, Chancellorsvillle, Spotsylvania Court House, and Fredericksburg. The formal agreement between FoWB and FRSP “recognizes FoWB as the primary organization suited to maintain the Ellwood Manor grounds and buildings and to provide on-site visitor interpretation of the history of Ellwood and the Civil War as it relates to the site.” Ellwood interpreters are dual volunteers for both FoWB and FRSP.
