  • 413 Mill Street
  • Occoquan, VA 22125

As an important river crossing between Alexandria and Fredericksburg, this settlement was busy and sometimes dangerous during the war. Confederate calvary raided Occoquan in December 1862. Union Gen. Joseph Hooker’s Army constructed a 300-foot-long pontoon bridge here as he followed Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee north towards Gettysburg in 1863.
