The Civil War: An Illustrated History
By Geoffrey C. Ward
This companion volume to the nine-part public television series contains more than 500 illustrations. Some of the photographs have never appeared before. The accounts of the Battle of Fredericksburg as well as some very memorable photographs of the area appear on pages 168 through 174. On page 185, one can almost feel the bitter January cold as the three Confederate pickets huddle around the fire and struggle to stay warm.
