The Battle of Chancellorsville was one of the major battles of the American Civil War. It was fought from April 30 to May 6, in Spotsylvania County, VA. The campaign pitted Union Army Major General Joseph Hooker's Army of the Potomac against General Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, an army less than half its size.
Chancellorsville is known as Lee's “perfect battle” because his risky decision to divide his army in the presence of a much larger enemy force resulted in a significant Confederate victory. Lee's audacity and Hooker's timid decision making, was tempered by heavy casualties and the mortal wounding of Lt. General “Stonewall” Jackson to friendly fire.
The battle ended in a significant Confederate victory.
