December 1862 unfolded in a deadly drama around Kenmore. Federal forces crossed the Rappahannock River on their march to Richmond, but found the road blocked by a well-fortified Confederate army. The Army of Northern Virginia, under General Robert E. Lee, repulsed General Ambrose Burnside's Army of the Potomac in battle on December 13. There were nearly 18,000 casualties that day--half within sight of Kenmore.
