    Fredericksburg. On December 13, 1862 the Army of the Potomac under Ambrose Burnside assaulted Lee's forces outside of Fredericksburg, Virginia.

During the battle, while watching the unfolding carnage through his binoculars, Lee was quoted as saying "It is well that war is so terrible, or we should grow too fond of it."
