The Battle of Fredericksburg

The story of the battle
The large Union army spent Dec. 12 crossing the river into the city initiating a new and highly destructive phase of the campaign. The residents of Fredericksburg had left their homes the day before. Women, children and elderly burdened with their most precious possessions trudged along the muddy streets to seek refuge in outlying areas in what some Confederates called the most depressing event they witnessed during the war.
