Confederate States Army


< to April • May 1863to June >

Commanded by General Robert E. Lee

The Battle of Chancellorsville (May 1-3) was a costly victory. The army lost about a quarter of its strength, with the Second Corps particularly hard hit. Probably the greatest loss was “Stonewall” Jackson, which caused Lee to rethink the army’s structure. On the plus side, Longstreet with his two detached divisions rejoined the army in mid-month from the disappointing Suffolk campaign.
