Taken February, 1863. Fredericksburg, Virginia, United States
(Library of Congress)

"Union Major General Burnside's failed invasion of the city of Fredericksburg, between the 11th and 15th of December, 1862, heralded a turning point in the American Civil War. Shown here is Timothy O'Sullivan's photograph of the town in the weeks after the Union's retreat. The spires of the Historic Courthouse, Presbyterian Church and St George's Episcopal Church can be seen in the background and are still standing today. 

Further coverage of the first Battle of Fredericksburg with eye witness accounts can be found on Unseen Histories."

– Jordan J. Lloyd

This historical photograph has been meticulously researched and rendered into colour from a black and white original by a skilled artisan, continuing a craft tradition that has existed since photography began.
