On June 7th the O.R. mentions VI Corps headquarters at Mansfield, AKA Barnard House. According to the 1860 census, three older Barnard women lived on this plantation, about a mile south of Fredericksburg VA. The Fredericksburg Country Club is here today. General Sedgewick placed his line of pickets along Bowling Green Road (modern-day Routes 2 and 17), just west of the Rappahannock River.
Evidently this early June action was photographed from the east bank of the river --
