307 Lewis Street--The Jane Beale House
A beautiful and peaceful scene today under freshly fallen snow. In December 11, 1862. Mrs. Jane Beale and her family were in the basement of this house during the Union bombardment of Fredericksburg. A shell would hit the bottom of the basement window on the right side of the house which dislodges a piece of wood which wounds her young son.
