  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    Looting and wanton destruction.  The sight of the ravaged city angered many in Robert E. Lee's army, from the commanding general himself down to the meanest privates.  One of the latter wanted Lee to "raise the black flag and show no quarter to any scoundrel who crossed the river."  The scale of the devastation in Fredericksburg was unprecedented in the war up to that point.
