The Union Church Preservation Project

John Washington Marker Unveiling

On Saturday September 17, 2011 a marker commemorating John Washington was dedicated at the Union Church as part of the Yankees in Falmouth activities. Washington, a freed slave, witnessed the military burial service for seven Federal soldiers killed early on the morning of April 18, 1862, as Union forces first advanced on Falmouth.

For more information, please see the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star newspaper article on the unveiling.
