    Allowing, for the moment, that Howard and Sedgwick were entirely at fault, and eliminating these two questions entirely from the issue, let us see what Hooker The Campaign of Chancellorsville book did, bearing in mind that he has officially acknowledged that he knew, substantially, the number of Lee's army, and bearing also in mind that the following are facts which can be disputed only by denying the truth and accuracy of all the reports, Federal and Confederate, taken as a body; and these happen to dovetail into each other in one so consistent whole, that they leave to the careful student none but entirely insignificant items open to doubt. Simply accepting a conversation recorded at third hand Doubleday, via Halstead via Bigelowe as fact without any other evidence is hardly conclusive. If loyalty to Hooker requires us to believe that this was even respectable generalship, it follows that the Army of the Potomac, well led, could be defeated by the Army of Northern Virginia, four to one. The Southern army could not afford a costly frontal attack against prepared fortifications.

    Furgurson doesn't mention him at all. An idiot could have won this battle. That photo should be associated with the Battle of Fredericksburg article instead. After making the desired impression, Jackson ducked under the Wilderness canopy and continued his march toward Howard's insensible soldiers.

    Russell was placed in command of our front line. Howe is clearly mistaken in alleging that his division was attacked by McLaws, Anderson, and Early. Stonewall Jackson. Sickles throws the blame upon Howard for the defeat of the Eleventh Corps, by reading the 9. I myself prefer to write as an American, forgetting North and South, and to pass down to those who will write better than any of us, as one who tried to speak the truth, whomsoever it struck. The New Jersey brigade marched on the right, and Bartlett's brigade on the left, of the road.

A lesser general would have. Let us see what was said. You would have more of a justification in calling Gettysburg a Pyrrhic Union victory.

An eager figure scanned the cars for two passengers who meant more to him than anyone else on earth. Brigadier General John Newton looked the very picture of a professional soldier.

However, I still think that there may The Campaign of Chancellorsville book a lot of truth to the statement by Halstead that Hooker simply lost his nerve.

March 2. Lee opted instead to meet the Federal challenge head-on. During the night, Lee came to the conclusion The Campaign of Chancellorsville book he must absolutely rid himself of Sedgwick, before he could again assault Hooker's defences.

What other wording would you suggest? Shortly thereafter a Federal shell struck Hill, incapacitating him, and direction of the corps devolved upon Stuart. It was only when he was driven to extremity in explaining the causes of his defeat, that The Campaign of Chancellorsville book after-wit suggested Sedgwick as an available scapegoat.

Robert E. The Southern Volunteer. Presenting balanced views from secondary sources is what we do here. William F. The Federals swept into the churchyard but a powerful counterattack drove them back and ended the day's combat.

In fact, in the Battle of Gettysburg despite once again being routed and forced to retreat he had wisely left infantry and artillery on Cemetery Ridge. With both wings of the enemy across the Rappahannock, Lee faced a serious dilemma. But Stonewall Jackson was not in a defensive mood. The next day Lee shoved Sedgwick across the Rappahannock at Banks Ford and once again focused on the main Union army in the Wilderness.

If loyalty to Hooker requires us to believe that this was even respectable generalship, it follows that the Army of the Potomac, well led, could be defeated by the Army of Northern Virginia, three to one. Some 15, men of Longstreet's Corps had previously been detached and stationed near Norfolk in order to block a potential threat to Richmond from Federal troops stationed at Fort Monroe and Newport News on the Peninsula, as well as at Norfolk and Suffolk.

If some notable person in the article received the MoH like Chamberlain in the various Gettysburg articlesit can be described in context of his actions, but just a list is too much.

However, it wasnt decisive in that sense, as the Union Army could still fight if it wanted, and it still vastly outnumbered their Confederate opponents. And it was certainly inexpedient in this case, despite the fact that Newton and Howe had fought their divisions, while Brooks had not yet been under fire.

I have never understood that Gibbon's "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" is any the less good because he did not live in the first few centuries of the Christian era, or that Jomini could write any less well of Frederick than of Napoleon.

If anyone has such information readily available, and I'm sure some reputable academic source has used the term Pyrrhic Victory in reference to this battle before, I invite its included mention in the aftermath section.

By daylight Monday morning, Early advanced from his position at Cox's, and with very little difficulty recaptured the heights, held by only a few of Gibbon's men. The software we use sometimes flags "false positives" -- that is, blocks that should not have occurred. Bigelow brought firsthand military experience to his project.

A conservative Democrat, he raised a regiment in and rode into the army on the coattails of the Republican administration's call for bipartisan support of the war effort.

An idiot could have won this battle. He confused matters by issuing a second order to his subordinates to hold their positions until 5 p. He prepared to pursue Hooker and seal the success achieved since dawn.Jun 12,  · The Campaign of Chancellorsville [Theodore Ayrault Dodge, Stephen W.

With the publication of Stephen W. Sears’s Chancellorsville, however, Civil War historiography has a worthy rival to Bigelow’s book. Although Sears’s book does not duplicate Bigelow’s in its tactical The Campaign of Chancellorsville book, it renders a fuller overall treatment of the campaign.
