Fredericksburg Memorial

Fredericksburg Memorial
The Battle of Fredericksburg was a rout for Union forces. They launched an attack on superior positions, with dire consequences for their forces.

After several days of the battle, a Confederate doctor , Richard Kirkland, walked onto the battlefield to tend to the dead and dying (with the Union lying in wait). This memorializes his actions.
