|Hi Anca To tell the truth I'm not as knowledgeable about Fredericksburg as I am about some other campaigns, so I wanted to wait untill others who might know more then I do had their say. But I will say this. I t would or should have been difficult for Lee to move his army in the face of Burnsides much larger force without waiting to see what Burnside would do next. You also have to remember that Burnside did try again, although he became bogged down in his infamous "Mud March. I'm also not sure, if Lee felt he had the supplies to move in winter so soon after a major battle. These are just suggestions.
