Sprednja platnica
Hachette Books, 9. okt. 2007 - 144 strani
Fredericksburg was one of the most tragic battles of the Civil War. No sector was more hotly contested than the area held by Longstreet's troops and known as Marye's Heights. While the heights seemed impregnable to the charging Union troops, Longstreet's men took heavy casualties and many times felt they were on the point of being overrun. The latest Battleground America volume covers the actions, units and personalities of this key section of the Fredericksburg battlefield and describes in detail the area as it was in 1862 and the national park that occupies the site today.

Stran 11 - Recurring to the idea of going to Richmond on the inside track, the facility of supplying from the side away from the enemy is remarkable, as it were, by the different spokes of a wheel extending from the hub toward the rim, and this whether you move directly by the chord, or on the inside arc, hugging the Blue Ridge more closely.
Stran 11 - It is all easy if our troops march as well as the enemy, and it is unmanly to say they cannot do it. This letter is in no sense an order.
Stran 11 - For a great part of the way you would be practically between the enemy and both Washington and Richmond, enabling us to spare you the greatest number of troops from here.
