Battle of Fredericksburg - Civil War History
Shannon Airport in Fredericksburg, VA is a fantastic destination. It is RIGHT ON the battlefield and you could bring a bike and ride around, or hike from there.   The airport has two good runways - paved and turf. We used the turf field for landing AND takeoff even though it is may be 1500' and there are trees at the north end! The staff of the airport is VERY friendly and will help with anything. Highly recommended destination for Civil War historians. Also, the historic downtown is wonderful to walk around, though you may need a ride to that.  Have a great time! Mike Marra, KEYSTONE FLIGHT
