I've been watching through Ken Burns' series, again, a little bit here and a little bit there, mostly at night, when I'm bored. Last night, I was watching the second of the two 1862 videos. They covered Antietam, obviously, and then Christmas and the end of year briefly. They did not even mention the Battle of Fredericksburg! I found that kind of shocking. I'm wondering if it is mentioned at the beginning of the 1863 video, but I am kind of doubting it.

Is anyone else suprised that Fredericksburg would not be covered?

Billy - I dont recall the series quite clearly but I am positive that F-burg was indeed mentioned.

In the 'companion book' it appears in the 1862: Forever Free Chapter, perhaps there is such a segment in the Series?

On the set of VHS videos, the Battle of Fredericksburg is covered on the first of the two 1863 videos.

Don't know about the VHS tapes, but in the DVD set, they cover Fredericksburg on the first disc that's more or less for 1863. I remember it distinctly as they are talking about something else and David McCullough seque's back to Fredericksburg by describing how "...their thoughts went back to December of 1862."

Then the title, "The Northern Lights" pops up.
