Additional Details

This vignette battlefield view was apparently never published in Harper's Weekly. The Battle of Fredericksburg was the only major Civil War battle to take place on the 13th of a month, and Waud was there--three of his other Fredericksburg sketches appeared in the 3 January 1863 issue.
