Chancellorsville Battlefield

The Battle of Chancellorsville was fought April 27 to May 5, 1863, under the command of Union Major General Joseph Hooker and Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Though this decision found the Confederates victorious, the army's loss of General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson proved to be a significant one for General Lee and his men.

Chancellorsville Battlefield is a part of Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park in Virginia, established on February 14, 1927.
