CHANCELLORSVILLE 1863 - American Civil War. Faced with an army twice the size of his own, Robert E. Lee split his forces and left Jubal Early to fend off Hooker's Fredericksburg attack.
General Joseph Hooker's attack was calculated to take his army to Richmond and end the war. Faced with an army twice the size of his own, Robert E. Lee split his forces and left Jubal Early to fend off Hooker's Fredericksburg attack, whilst "Stonewall" Jackson was sent to take the Federal right flank by surprise. Sedgewick was driving Early's small force back at Fredericksburg, when Lee joined the fight. Hooker was defeated and forced to withdraw his army across the Rappahannock. 96 pages 70 b/w; 12 color 7 x 9
