The Battle of Chancellorsville is sometimes described by historians as Robert E. Lee's perfect battle. Faced with an enemy army of overwhelming numbers, Lee did the unthinkable; he divided his army and flanked. This would have spelled disaster for a lesser general, but in Lee's case it inflicted a heavy toll on the Union Army.
It would have been a great Confederate victory, save for the wounding of General Stonewall Jackson. This patch depicts the moment Stonewall Jackson was wounded on his horse, shot by friendly fire. A black border with bronze outline surrounds the center image and contains the name and dates of the battle. Jackson's death, four days later, was a serious loss to the Confederacy.
