A raised tomb marks the final resting place of John Minor in the Masonic Cemetery on Charles Street in downtown historic Fredericksburg.
He not only served in the Revolutionary War as a colonel of the Spotsylvania County militia, but he was also a brigadier general of militia in the War of 1812.
Minor was a member of the Virginia House of Delegates from 1805 to 1807, but he lost a bid for a Congressional seat when he ran against his close friend, James Monroe.
