Fredericksburg Battlefield Virginia

"The Battle of Fredericksburg"
Carl Rochling (1855-1920)
Colonel Charles H. T. Collis, commander of the 114th Pennsylvania Volunteers, commissioned this vivid depiction of the Battle of Fredericksburg. The painting captures a dramatic moment during the Union assault at Prospect Hill. As "Stonewall" Jackson's Confederates surge out of the distant woods, threatening Union artillery, General John C. Robinson's horse is killed, pinning the brigade leader to the ground. When Robinson falls, Collis's colorful Pennsylvania Zouaves momentarily falter. Galloping to the front, Colonel Collis seizes the regimental flag and rallies his men with an order to charge. His action saved the guns and earned him the Medal of Honor.
