"Stonewall" Jackson's flanking movement seizes the initiative in the Battle of Chancellorsville
General Joseph Hooker had called a halt to his advance of the previous day with the aim of encouraging a Confederate attack that could be repulsed from entrenched positions in the woods of "the Wilderness." He got more than he had bargained for when a brilliant flanking movement by General "Stonewall" Jackson destroyed General Otis Howard's XI Corps on the Union right in the early evening.
