Fredericksburg Virginia as it appeared during the Battle of 2nd Fredericksburg during the Chancellorsville campaign May of 1863.
Behind the homes along the Rappahannock River lay the fields over which the Union forced repeatedly advanced on
December 13, 1862 in their efforts to take the distant heights held by the men of General James Longstreet's Corps.
If you look closely towards the distance center along the ridge line, you can see the pillared home of Brompton on Marye's Heights,
the focus of many of the Union's futile and bloody charges.
