This chapter discusses how the battle of Fredericksburg left a lasting impression on both the Union and Confederates. Fredericksburg had come to signify both courage and carnage, a costly and, some might say, meaningless valor. Recriminations, exultation, and most of all death dominated recollections of what had happened back in December 1862.
