Fredericksburg Campaign

TheBattle of Fredericksburgwas fought December 11–15, 1862, in and aroundFredericksburg, Virginia, between GeneralRobert E. Lee'sConfederateArmy of Northern Virginiaand theUnionArmy of the Potomac, commanded byMaj. Gen.Ambrose Burnside. The Union army's futile frontal attacks on December 13 against entrenched Confederate defenders on the heights behind the city is remembered as one of the most one-sided battles of theAmerican Civil War, with Union casualties more than twice as heavy as those suffered by the Confederates.

Burnside's plan was to cross theRappahannock Riverat Fredericksburg in mid-November and race to theConfederatecapital ofRichmondbefore Lee's army could stop him. Bureaucratic delays prevented Burnside from receiving the necessary pontoon bridges in time and Lee moved his army to block the crossings. When the Union army was finally able to build its bridges and cross under fire,urban combatresulted in the city on December 11–12. Union troops prepared to assault Confederate defensive positions south of the city and on a strongly fortified ridge just west of the city known as Marye's Heights.

On December 13, the "grand division" of Maj. Gen.William B. Franklinwas able to pierce the first defensive line of ConfederateLt. Gen.Stonewall Jacksonto the south, but was finally repulsed. Burnside ordered the grand divisions of Maj. Gens.Edwin V. SumnerandJoseph Hookerto make multiple frontal assaults against Lt. Gen.James Longstreet's position on Marye's Heights, all of which were repulsed with heavy losses. On December 15, Burnside withdrew his army, ending another failed Union campaign in theEastern style="line-height: 1.5em; list-style-type: none; margin: 0.3em 0px; padding: 0px; list-style-image: none; text-align: left; ">
