Through National Geographic’s heart-stopping you-are-there reenactment photography and in-depth research and reporting, readers will be transported back to this key episode in our nation’s history. Considered Lee’s “most one-sided victory of the war,” Fredericksburg was a significant turning point in the Civil War. 1862 takes a new look at the battle and provides readers with a unique perspective on what the war meant to non combatants and particularly to blacks on the cusp of freedom. This extraordinary coverage is made possible by newly discovered primary sources, including a never-before-known slave diary. From death, injury, and despair to victory and the trials of post-war life, the 1862 battle of Fredericksburg changed a town and a nation forever.

In the spring of 1862, many Americans still believed that the Civil War would be over by Christmas. The previous summer in Virginia, Bull Run, with nearly 5,000 casualties, had been shocking, but suddenly came word from a far away place in the wildernesses of southwest Tennessee of an appalling battle costing 23,000 casualties, most of them during a single day. It was more than had resulted from the entire American Revolution. As author Winston Groom reveals in this dramatic, heart-rending account, the Battle of Shiloh would single-handedly change the psyche of the military, politicians, and American people—North and South—about what they had unleashed by creating a Civil War.
