  4. How it all started…… The north had lost a battle at Fredricksburg a year ago and were trying to sneak up on the south with a surprise attack. Gen. Lee found out about this plan just in time to send most of his army to intercept the northern army. They met at a town called Chancellorsville. The land was full of trees and bushes and so it was very hard to tell where everybody was. Lee sent General Stonewall Jackson to attack the northern army from the other- side. This "flank" attack is still considered one of the most brilliant attacks in military history. It worked. Jackson ran into the right side of the northern army and pushed them back. WHAT HAPPENED ?

  5. When the night finally came Stonewall Jackson was shot by his own men thinking that he was a spy from the Union Army. The Confederates won this battle because of the smart thinking of Robert E. Lee WHAT HAPPENED ?
