General Ambrose Burnside truly did a shitty job at the Battle of Fredricksburg (which occurred 140 years ago this week).  It was the only major engagement he led.  Lincoln had just tapped him to replace McClellan, who was the biggest fuck-up in the history of US Army generals.  Lincoln made his famous “snatching defeat from the jaws of victory” comment about the Union’s performance.

This strip is kind of experimental.  Just seeing if I can take 140-year old “current events,” combine them with a playground joke that hasn’t been funny in almost as long, and still come out with a laugh…
