I just want to make sure that I get this right - it looks like there is a riverine connection between Washington and Fredericksburg. Is that so, or am I just looking at a piece of ocean?

If this is correct, then that means the Union can play Gunboats while defending in Washington, yes?

Never play block wargames with a dentist, they have those little mirrors to peek behind the block.

It looked like that to me. I am not sure they could justify that in other CW games don't think The Rapppahanock is navagiable to river traffic. At least in other CW game I can't remember it being so, but will admit I could be wrong about it.

No but the Potomac is and the Potomac river is only a few miles east of Fredericksburg and was used to supply the Union army during Burnside's operations in 1862.

Indeed. At the game scale, the riverine connection represents the Potomac. Some argue that the CSA historically would not have had a chance to make it towards Washington this way - I wanted to leave it as a possibility but considering the pro USA modifiers that an attack on Washington via this riverine connection entails it has little chance of succeeding.
