Civil War sites

Jenny had organised a lovely day for us showing us her town that is full of history. We started off visiting local markets and with a yummy breakfast out at a very cool little cafe.

This cute historic town established in 1671 is not far from the Potomac River and Rappahannock River that goes out to Chesapeake Bay. As well as being full of civil war battles and history there is much American Indian history about Hiawatha. It was part of the Confedreate southern states

After breakfast we wandered around looking in interesting old antique shops. Everything is so old and so much cheaper than Australian antiques.

In the afternoon we did a n interesting trolley tour for $17 and went past:
