Today we commemorate the lives lost and bravery exhibited during the attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941. Our December Currents section remembers Doris Miller, the first African-American to receive the Navy Cross, for his courage under fire during the attack.
The centerpiece of the holidays in Fredericksburg is the wooden German Christmas Pyramid that lights up Marktplatz starting the Friday after Thanksgiving and continuing through the first week of January.
