      150 years ago today the 7th Michigan followed by the 19th and 20th
      Massachusetts crossed the Rappahannock River under fire and then took to
      the streets chasing the Confederates out of the city of Fredericksburg.
      They would then take part of the battle at Marye's Heights which would
      end in a devasting Union defeat.
