The origin of this paper was on this wise: Many years ago the writer came into such relations with General Franklin as to make him thoroughly aware of the extent of his possession of those qualities which make a man trustworthy under any test. This knowledge of the man led to a wondering curiosity as to the real basis of the charges against him by the Committee on the conduct of the war, of the prejudice which grew thereout and which affected the minds of many unfamiliar with the facts, or knowing them only partially and in distortion. During the past winter the writer had occasion, in connection with another matter, to review the facts relating to the battle of Fredericksburg; and so clearly and indisputably in his own mind were the conclusions of this paper established, and so in harmony with the mans character were his actions on that day, that he could not repress the desire to set them forth in their orderly sequence of time and logical force.
