There was also a truce at Fredericksburg. According to O’Reilly, three days after the battle General Franklin (US) sent a request for an informal truce to collect the wounded. This Federal officer was met by General Rodes (CS) who decline “an unofficial arrangement.” Franklin tried again two hours later, and Stonewall “rejected it, and demanded the application by properly submitted in writing. Franklin’s representative acquiesced; Stonewall Jackson, well satisfied, granted a truce for the remaining hour of daylight.” (445)
