These are excerpts from a soon to be published Civil War Novel about the battle of Fredericksburg. Even though it is a "novel," extreme care was taken by the author to ensure it's historical accuracy down to the smallest detail. We are extremely lucky that the author has allowed us to put portions of his novel on this website. Thanks a bunch Pat!
