It is one of the most iconic battles of the Civil War. General Robert E. Lee and his outnumbered Army of Northern Virginia,  outmaneuvered and outfought their perennial foe, the Union Army of the Potomac in the dense "Wilderness" of Spotsylvania County, Virginia. By the end of the battle, the names of some 30,000 men lined the casualty lists and one of Lee's most trusted subordinates lay dying at Guinea Station.  

Join us May 2nd, 3rd, and 10th 2018, live on Facebook for all of the highlights of the Chancellorsville Campaign—the Cracker Box Meeting, Jackson's Flank Attack, the Wounding of Stonewall Jackson, the fight for the Chancellorsville Crossroads, and more. We will bring you live to the Chancellorsville Battlefield via Facebook, and have leading historians, surprises, and a lot of fun in store. Learn more about this vital campaign that opened the bloody campaigning season of 1863.
