Fredericksburg Staff Ride Briefing Book

Fredericksburg Staff Ride Briefing Book

ByTed BallardBilly Arthur

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The movement and details of the Union offensive plan at Fredericksburg seemed to be understood by all senior commanders; the North had a preponderance of manpower and artillery; a bridgehead was established on the enemy side of the river and initial objectives secured. Why did Burnside decide to withdraw his army back across the river to its original position? That question cannot be answered without viewing the pontoon crossing sites, the Union approach routes, the infamous "stonewall," and the other Confederate defensive positions. Accordingly, the purpose of a Fredericksburg staff ride is to visit these and other locations on the battlefield and analyze the battle through the eyes of the men who were there, both leaders and rank and file soldiers. This book includes maps, orders of battle, illustrations and appendices. (Facsimile reprint originally published by the Army's Center for Military History; typography less dark than the original)
