Lee Hill.  From this location on December 11, 1862, General Robert E. Lee made his headquarters at Telegraph Hill (now called Lee Hill). At 5:00am the loud booming of two cannons had notified the general that the Union army was crossing the Rappahannock River at Fredericksburg. Throughout the day, he watched as a brigade of Mississippi riflemen kept the Union army at bay along the water's edge.  Mike Lynaugh
