AHW as Gen. Burnside

This scene finds Burnside revealing tactics to his Division commanders leading up to the fateful battle of Fredericksburg, which resulted in a huge defeat for the Union and a great morale boosting victory for the Confederates, commanded by Gen. Robert E. Lee (Robert Duvall). The battle of Fredericksburg is also noteworthy as the first urban battle in U.S. history as the town, later looted by the victors, was situated very close to the battlefields.
