Mcclellan distributed his army along the Maryland Side of the Potomac watching it lords. He evidently thought the used up army of Lee might attempt another invasion of Maryland.

Leeds plan for Tho Battle of Fredericksburg was at once simple and admirable. Long a to wet corp had been the dint to arrive on Hie ground and it of culled the left with Gen. Richard h. Anderson on the extreme left Stonewall Jackson was on the right. And the forces of the two joined in the Center and encircled Fredericksburg. To understand the fight fully glance at the acco cd ving Man. Five Miles below f de Rick spurs the Little Mam Apoua River flowed into the Tappahannock from the West. A Ridge of Hills sloped Down to the Tappahannock above the mass Apoua running from the Northwest.

But peal tinged with the pro or anti mugs Lalii partisanship. The position of neither pork nor Burnside a commander of the army of the Potomac was a pleasant one and that fact needs to be borne in mind now tautly. Brig Gen j. F. Reynolds commanded the first corp in Franklin left grand division. Franklin considered that three divisions of Reynolds Cor a were sufficient to carry out Burnsides order which he understood to mean that he should make a Recomio Lasauce rather than a serious attack. To Reynolds a deputed this task and to his corps belonged Meade Dis lion. Gen. O. J. Howard commanded the second division in Sumner a right grand division Aud led one of the awful charge against a. Yes Hill. Oliver Otis Howard was Lorn in Maine ii 1830, and was graduated at West Point in 1854. He was instructor in mathematics at the military Academy for some time after ginning of tie civil War.

St Heman s corps of Hooker grand division was pushed in behind the diva on of Franklin on the Federal left at by Wiericks Burg in time to Aid in the repulse of the con federates there. His advantage was in it a dubbed by Franklin. He considered that his a Deri from Burnside did not justify him to doing so.

A Ransom took conspicuous part in the bloody fighting that afterwards of curved there. It a by a May be mentioned Gen. A Ivson. In passing that this Gen. Ransom is now United states senator Matt w. Ransom from North Carolina. Gen. Ransom was a native of North Carolina. Born to 1826. He was educated in his Fredericksburg Battle Groux. Below the town the Ridge again approaches close to the Nasr. Behind the first Range of Hills another Rose As if both were built by nature for the planting of batteries for Hie Protection of Fredericksburg. Burnside could not have selected a worse Point for attack or Lee a better one for defense. The Railroad from Richmond to the Potomac River passed through the town. Iraq bad 78,000 men after Jackson joined him. These began to throw up earthworks in a Crescent six Miles Long from the Masso Onax to above Fredericksburg. They worked with a will and soon had built those formidable fortifications against which Burnside hapless Host were to dash themselves like Waves against a Granite Rocs.
