The Civil War in the East


Army of Northern Virginia

General Robert E. Lee


The Battle of Fredericksburg (December 13) was one of the army's easiest victories. It suffered a little more than 5,000 casualties while causing more than twice that to the North. It was the last serious fighting the army would see until May.
