General Halleck meets with General Burnside

Tuesday, November 11, 1862

General-in-Chief Henry Halleck arrived in Warrenton today to discuss General Ambrose Burnside's plan to attack Fredericksburg. General Halleck was not pleased with the details of Burnside's plan and believed a meeting with Burnside was vital before any plan was put into place.1
