The Federal Offensive on the Rappahannock. Following the Battle of Antietam in September of 1862, Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia withdrew southward, deploying that autumn in two separate wings near Winchester and Culpepper. In November the new commander of the Union's Army of the Potomac. Ambrose Burnside, conceived a plan to shift his forces east from Warrenton, seize Fredericksburg and descend on a direct route south to capture Richmond. Anticipating the Federal move, Lee consolidated his forces in a blocking position on the south bank of the Rappahannock, setting the stage for savage battles at Fredericksburg and nearby Chancellorsville. In this highly illustrated volume, these events are described in detail. Includes an Index.
