City of Fredericksburg

The Federals used the courthouse cupola signal station and an observation post. From here Union General Darius Couch watched the futile attacks against Marye's Heights on December 13. Exclaimed Couch, "Oh, great God! see how our men, [our poor fellows, are falling!"
"The slaves are flocking to the Federal army by hundreds. As many as 80 have gone off at one time from, the river plantations, and it is said there is scarcely a slaveholder in Fredericksburg who has not lost one or more of his negroes."
- Gen. Irvin McDowell, USA May 5, 1862
