Blundering Burnsides dithering and delaying opposite Fredericksburg, allowing Lee to bring up the AoNV and take up the defensive positions along Maryes Heights and then compounding that by actually attacking those Heights head on and at huge loss.
That has to rank up among the most egregious blunders, fedreb. Book learning triumphs over common sense. (Said while in my recliner here in late 2009.)
