The Battle of Chancellorsville was both the high point and one of the most tragic for the Second Corps in the Civil War. Jackson’s stunning flank attack not only crushed the Union Eleventh Corps but permanently took the initiative away from Hooker. But the high casualties suffered – including Jackson himself – crippled the corps at the height of its success and removed any cause for celebration. One result of the battle was the reorganization of the army. A.P. Hill’s Division became the nucleus of the new Third Corps, which Hill would command, while Richard Ewell returned from recovering from the loss of his leg to take over the Second Corps.
