Fredericksburg! Fredericksburg!

George C. Rabie

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter describes the hardships faced by both Union and Confederate armies with the approach of the winter campaign. These include the lack of shelter, clothing, hunger, and disease. At the end of the first week in November 1862, Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan's forces were near Warrenton, scattered from Manassas Junction to the east with cavalry as far west as Sperryville. Robert E. Lee's army remained divided in the face of this formidable foe, with Longstreet at Culpeper and Jackson in the Shenandoah Valley near Winchester. But as so often happens, the clash of arms that appeared certain to occur within days never took place.
