Although the Confederacy prevailed at Chancellorsville, “Fighting Joe” Hooker used the defeat to institute a multitude of reforms in the Army of the Potomac, paving the way for the hard-fought victory at Gettysburg and the Union’s ultimate triumph. Bryant, a Shenandoah University professor, weaves together a lively and comprehensive account of the engagement.
