Many historians consider the 1863 Battle of Chancellorsville to be Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s greatest victory. Facing a Union Army more than twice the size of his own, Lee divided his forces, sending General “Stonewall” Jackson on a daring flank attack that turned the tide of the fight. Author Kristopher White discussed the battle and detailed Lee’s strategy.
