This chapter describes events at the start of the New Year. As with Christmas, boisterous celebrations might have temporarily relieved melancholy, but soldiers and civilians alike continued to live with painful memories of the recent past. The nation also turned again towards Lincoln for an infusion of moral purpose and strategic direction. The Fredericksburg disaster kindled speculation that the president might delay or withhold the final Emancipation Proclamation.
