For A Simpler(?) Time
A horse/carriage hitch in front of the Doggett House (circa 1817). It is said that Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States, stood on the porch of this house at the beginning of the Civil War and told the residents of Fredericksburg that the war would not come here. The city would soon after become a focal point of the struggle and the site of two battles.
