ABOUT THIS IMAGE
Taken between 1860 and 1865. United States
(Library of Congress)
"Ambrose Everett Burnside (1824 – 1881) was a senior American soldier, industrialist and politician from Indiana. Acting as a Union Major General during the American Civil War, following successful campaigns in North Carolina and East Tennessee, he was appointed by 16th US President Abraham Lincoln to march on the Confederate State Army in Richmond, Virginia. Burnside's reluctant appointment was soon followed by a disastrous failed invasion of the Confederate stronghold of Fredericksburg in December, 1862, which led to over 12,000 Union soldiers dead over a four day battle.
Following the American Civil War, Burnside entered the railroad building business and other industrial concerns, as well as three one year terms as the Governor of Rhode Island.
In popular culture, Burnside is remembered for his unusual facial hair, leading to the popular facial hairstyle sideburns, named in his honour.
Further coverage of the first Battle of Fredericksburg with eye witness accounts can be found on Unseen Histories.
