The capabilities of his corps and division commanders were such that Lee was better able than the Federals to utilize to advantage the principle of mass, which simply means the capability to bring to bear at the right place, at the right time, the number of divisions necessary to accomplish the mission. Many thoughtful, historically minded persons have rightly appraised him as the most eminent of American military commanders, collaterally according him a place in the roster of great captains of all time.

If by that date [first of May] Hooker had not put his army in motion or given a clear indication of his intentions, Lee would take the offensive himself to bring matters to a head.
Hooker incorrectly thought that Lee would remain on the defensive or withdraw when attacked. His opponent had just sprung a surprise on him by a concealed march of three army corps in a wide swing, miles to the west of the fords where Lee had anticipated a crossing. This enemy was now on his left rear while another large troop concentration was threatening Fredericksburg. In Fredericksburg, Lee tried to determine if the greater threat lay on his left flank with Hooker or with Maj.

Lee correctly determined his greatest peril was to the west with Hooker. Our condition favors their operations. Richard H. Anderson to move west from north of Fredericksburg toward Chancellorsville. Also on April 30, Lee ordered Maj. Lafayette McLaws down from Fredericksburg to support Anderson.
Who but Robert E. Lee would have the strategic insight and moral courage to assume the heavy risk of further dividing his forces? At dawn on May 1, Lee and Lt. Thomas J. Lee noted that the enemy was barely active and predicted to Jackson that the Union attack would come from Chancellorsville. Lee was a gambler, and he took a bold risk to attack in his numerically inferior state. He decided to leave behind a token force under Maj. Jubal A. Early to cover Sedgwick at Fredericksburg and ordered Jackson to take his remaining divisions to strike Hooker at Chancellorsville.
This unexpected Confederate resistance badly unnerved the Union leader. At that moment, Hooker lost the strategic initiative and ordered all units to withdraw from the attack and resume their original positions. Thus, on the first day of the battle, Lee had already taken charge of the ebb and flow of the conflict.
It was good news that Stuart brought, and the case for a flank maneuver became a determination in the minds of the two leaders. Oliver O. Bridgers are designated as "observers" since North Carolina has not yet withdrawn from the United States. Montgomery becomes the capital of the Confederacy. While the secession convention is meeting in Alabama, another group meets in Washington. This is the Peace Conference or Convention with more than delegates who hope that they can forge a compromise and "adjust the present unhappy controversies".
North Carolina sends 5 delegates headed by former governor John Motley Morehead. The conference does offer a proposed constitutional amendment, but it pleases neither pro- nor anti-slavery supporters. The Choctaw Nation votes to ally itself with the Confederacy. Jefferson Davis of Mississippi is elected president of the Confederacy; Alexander Stephens of Georgia is vice-president.
Their inauguration is on the 18th. Since the Confederate constitution provides for one 6-year term for the president, Davis will be the Confederacy's only chief executive. Texas secedes from the Union. Efforts to call a secession convention in North Carolina fail by votes out of nearly 94, cast in a statewide referendum. This Month's Fiction Adult fiction. Gods and Generals is Shaara fils' homage to Shaara pere's interest in the Civil War and to the vein of superior historical fiction he mined so notably.
This robust, thoughtful novel focuses simultaneously on the lives of four men who played significant roles in the military side of the Civil War in battles leading up to the great one at Gettysburg. Lee from to , giving the reader splendidly detailed witness to how the war drew them into commanding positions. As should be the case with good historical fiction, Shaara, in taking actual figures from the past, rekindles them; he uses the personal experiences of these four men to meaningfully explore the political and military issues of the day.
Jakes constructs a story of the shadow war waged by Union and Confederate spies and counterspies, by undercover agents and provocateurs on both sides of the line. From the involvement of the Pinkertons to the creation of the Secret Service to Lincoln's assassination, Jakes focuses on four young people caught up in the chaos of war: a spy, a rebel, an actress, and an officer, their lives swept away in a tumult of love, hatred, political intrigue, violence, and constant danger.
In , the Army of Northern Virginia used the Valley as its avenue of invasion, culminating in the battle of Gettysburg. The Valley continued to offer Confederates an alluring backdoor to Washington D. But when Sheridan returned to the Valley in , the stakes jumped dramatically. To lose the Valley would mean to lose the state, Stonewall Jackson had once said—and now that prediction would be put to the test as Sheridan fought with Confederate Lieutenant General Jubal Early for possession. For the North, the fragile momentum its war effort had gained by capturing Atlanta would quickly evaporate; for Abraham Lincoln, defeat in the Valley could very well mean defeat in the upcoming election.
For the South, more than its breadbasket was at stake—its nascent nationhood lay on the line. The battle of Chickamauga brought an early fall to the Georgia countryside in , where men fell like autumn leaves.
