As the battle of Fredericksburg neared, Union and Confederate soldiers could observe one another from hills overlooking the Rappahannock River. Marye's Heights was the most prominent ridge on the Confederate side. Even after Union troops crossed the icy water in December 1862, they could not dislodge Confederates from Marye's Heights, although 8,000 men perished in the attempt. This short guide to Fredericksburg includes maps, photos, and recommended tour stops, along with battle narrative.
