Map of the Battle Field of Fredericksburg

The full title on the cover of Map of the Battle Field of Fredericksburg (1866) indicates that the details provided in the publication's fold-out map and forty-four-page text were taken from official Confederate reports of the event, including one by General Robert E. Lee. Carter Moore Braxton, a civil engineer and businessman who lived in Fredericksburg after the war, prepared and arranged for the book's publication; B. L. Blackford, who had served in the Confederate Topographical Engineers Office, drew the map.
