Fredericksburg 1862-'Clear the Way' -- Amrerican Civil War.

Click to EnlargeIn December 1862, things were still confused for the Union. Antietam had been a failure for both sides, and McClellan was slow in pursuing the withdrawing Lee, not acting until October 1862. In the West Grant was closing on Vicksburg, and the Mississippi was under greater Union control. Lincoln appointed General Burnside to command the Army of the Potomac, and it was he who planned to seize and secure the town of Fredericksburg, and then take the Confederate capitol of Richmond. Carl Smith's book details the epic struggle that engulfed the Union side as it crossed the Rappahannock on December 11, encountering stiff opposition from Lee's men. 96 pages 70 b/w; 14 color 7 x 9 Contents Burnside Takes Command Commanders and Armies Chronology Moving to Winter Quarters 15 November through 10 December Orders of Battle The wait: 10?12 December: Burnside?s Plan of Attack The Six Assaults: 13 December (Sumner?s Front) Franklin?s Front and Meade?s Attack The Final Union Assault On Marye?s Heights That Never Was The Closing Moves Gaming Fredericksburg Fredericksburg Today
