Sabbath, Dec. 14, 1862

Daniel is still here.  Mr. Wakefield preached an excellent practical sermon.  "I will set the Lord always before me."

Peggy's comments:
Meanwhile, at Fredericksburg, Virginia, General Burnside was preparing to retreat across the Rappahannock.  He had recently replaced the always-hesitating-to-act General McClellan, but Burnside's first attempt was so unsuccessful that he would soon be replaced.

Here's a link to an animated map of the battle:
Rufus Dawes was in Doubleday's division.
