December 13, 1862. Here, on the wood's edge facing the fields of the Lansdowne Valley, Gen. George Pickett's 9,000 men, including soldiers from Fredericksburg, held a vital part of Lee's line. The enemy did not attack Pickett's Division and the men remained inactive, though elements of the division were later sent to reinforce the defenders of Marye's Height. A summer's charge near a little town called Gettysburg lay in the unknown future.
