Question: The battle of Fredericksburg was fought in December. Why are the leaves still on the trees?
They were transported there after being wounded at the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House (possibly the Wilderness as well) in May 1864 and photographed shortly after their arrival.

I just added the year to the title to prevent confusion with the two previous battles there in 1862 and 1863.

marye house wounded 1863.jpg


This photograph of wounded men in front of the Marye House is new to me. Unfortunately, no photographer is attributed. HA.com says it was taken c. 1863, which if true, could mean Andrew J. Russell took it as he documented the aftermath of the 1863 Second Battle of Fredericksburg.

I'm about to post the three other photos of the front of the Marye House taken around the same time.
