Publisher Comments:

Drawing on a wealth of new sources, Sears captures all of the drama of Chancellorsville, Lee's strategic masterpiece--from sending Stonewall Jackson on his 12-mile march around the Union flank to the tragedy of Jackson's end, accidentally shot by his own troops. 16 photos.

Synopsis:

Sears describes the series of controversial events that define this crucial battle, including General Robert E. Lee's radical decision to divide his small army--a violation of basic military rules--sending Stonewall Jackson on his famous march around the Union army flank. Jackson's death--accidentally shot by one of his own soldiers--is one of the many fascinating stories included in this definitive account of the battle of Chancellorsville.
