(6-2006Enlarge This photo was taken on June 25, 2006 in the morning between downpours of heavy rain. It was taken from the Fredericksburg National Cemetery looking down the slope. The Union Army of the Potomac's Fifth Corps attacked Maryes' Heights unsuccessfully on December 13, 1862 at a terrible cost in loss of life. In 1901 General Daniel Butterfield erected this monument to honor the soldiers of his command who died in the charge(s) against the Confederates at Maryes' Heights, as well as all of the Fifth Corps soldiers in the entire war

(6-2006Enlarge The statue of Andrew A. Humphreys is the most impressive at Fredericksburg National Cemetery. It is located in the middle of the cemetery where over 15,000 Union troops lie buried. Gen Humphreys seems to be looking out over the field at these men. Over 1,000 of the total were men under his command from Pennsylvania. The soldiers of Humphrey's Division of the 5th Corps got within 100 yards of the impossible objective before they were driven back
