DescriptionTwo Fredericksburg, Virginia, Images, circa 1863. Neither has a photographer's imprint. One (12.5" x 10.5") features the Marye House, which overlooks Fredericksburg. At the Battle of Fredericksburg in December 1862, Confederates held the house, which served as General Longstreet's headquarters, against Union assaults. Later in May 1863, Union troops under General John Sedgwick won the house but lost it again the next day. This photo was likely taken on the one day when the Union army held the house-May 3. Penciled notations appear on the reverse. Stains, some wrinkles, and a few holes in the image (though not in the board).
The other (11" x 9") is an albumen that features the town of Fredericksburg, Virginia, taken by Alexander Gardner. The image appears in Gardner's Photographic Sketch Book of the Civil War as plate 30. Toned with minor stains.
