Chancellorsville 1863: The Souls of the Brave

Chancellorsville 1863: The Souls of the Brave

written by: Ernest B. Furgurson

performed by: Joel Richards

For 130 years historians and military strategists have been obsessed by the battle of Chancellorsville. It began with an audaciously planned stroke by Union general Joe Hooker as he sent his army across the Rappahannock River and around Robert E. Lee’s lines. It ended with that same army fleeing back in near total disarray – and Hooker’s reputation in ruins. This splendid account of Chancellorsville – the first in more than 35 years – explains Lee’s most brilliant victory even as it places the battle within the larger canvas of the Civil War.
