"The Battle of Chancellorsville, widely considered Gen. Robert E. Lee's greatest victory, saw the Rebel army under Lee and Gen. Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson rout a Yankee force more than twice its size. The Northern defeat would be masked, the Tribune declared, by a 'deception practiced by the War Department on the loyal people of the Union.'"
One hundred fifty years ago this last week of April the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia ONCE YET MORE victorious over the Union Army of the Potomac. Federal forces put to rout in a decided fashion humiliatingly so.
As stated in the Tribune article and generally as accepted by the historians, Chancellorsville considered: "Gen. Robert E. Lee's greatest victory".
Not until over one week later after the battle had concluded the news as reported in the Chicago Tribune, the true nature of what actually occurred not made apparent.
And in victory also a significant loss, the death from "friendly fire" of the Confiederate General Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson shot by one his own men in the aftermath of the battle, a command presence for which there WAS NEVER A REPLACEMENT!!
