Joseph Hooker was a career U.S. military officer who served as a major general and commander of the Union Army of the Potomac during the Civil War. Hooker entered the Civil War in 1861 as a brigadier general and gained a reputation as a reliable combat commander during the Peninsula Campaign and the Battle of Antietam.
After the Union defeat at the Battle of Fredericksburg, Hooker succeeded General Ambrose Burnside as commander of the Army of the Potomac in early 1863. Hooker went on to serve under General Sherman during the Atlanta Campaign in mid-1864.
The two generals were constantly at odds, and when Sherman passed him over for a promotion, Hooker protested by asking to be relieved from duty. He officially left the field in the summer of 1864.
