Why was the Union defeated at the US Civil War Battle of Chancellorsville?

In the Battle of Chancellorsville in the American Civil War, the Union army was defeated through a combination of primarily two factors. The first factor was the timidity of the Union general, who repeatedly over-estimated the striking capacity of the smaller Confederate Army facing his units. The second was the boldness of the Confederate General, Robert E. Lee, who cunningly took the fight to the enemy despite its greater size.

What happened at the Battle of Chancellorsville?

Lee managed to wrong-foot Hooker, enabling Stonewall to mount a shattering charge that made for a decisive victory. But Stonewall was mortally wounded by his own men in the evening, possibly due to confusion in bad light, but believed by some to have been an assassination.

It was Lee's finest hour, but also the beginning of the end for him and his army. Without Stonewall, he could never carry out the same bold thrusts as before. Also it was from this time that his health began to fail - perhaps due to this psychological blow.

Does rocket warriors effect come into play before or after the battle damage?

Rocket Warrior's Effect:

This effect is only active during the Battle Phase of your turn. Battle Damage to this card and this card's controller that they take from a battle involving this card becomes 0. After damage calculation, decrease the ATK of the monster that was attacked by this card by 500 points until the end of this turn.

I'm assuming that you're talking about the 2nd part of the effect, in which case the answer is - after. The effect is to lower the attack of a monster after rocket warrior has attacked it and in doing so rocket warrior and his controller take no damage. If rocket warrior destroys the monster in the attack, the second effect is moot.

Why did Union Major General Joseph Hooker attack at Chancellorsville?

The Union Army was there. Hooker was the Union Commander so this answer makes no sense. In the Spring of 1863, after the horrible slaughter of Union troops at Fredricksburg on Dec. 13, 1862, Lincoln sacked yet another General of the Army of the Potomac(Ambrose Burnside). He appointed General Joseph Hooker. Hooker,wanting to bring ultimate victory for the North saw his chance to trap Lee's Army of Northern Virginia against the Rappahannock River. Hooker's main force was still opposite of part of Lee's Army at Fredricksburg(on the opposite side of the river. Hooker devised what he thought to be a masterful plan,leaving part of his force in easy view of the Confederates and moving the bulk of his army along the bank of the river to a point where,after crossing ,he would emerge "behind" Lee's Army with Lee's back against the river. His movement was discovered by Confederate cavalry and reported to General Lee,who moved quickly to confront Hooker as he emerged from the dense forest(The Wilderness). To abbreviate this answer I will just say that after 4 days of fighting Hooker retreated back to the north side of the river. Because of specific bold actions taken by Lee,this victory is considered by most to be his greatest battle victory.

What was the result of the US Civil War Battle of Chancellorsville?

Great Britain had already given the Confederacy defacto recognition almost as soon as the US Civil War began. It helped the Confederacy by building warships for the South and continued to supply the South with firearms. Great Britain's position was based on sound reasoning. The South had a constitution, an army and a central government.

Lee won a brilliant victory at chancellorsville through the tactic of?

On May 1st, 1863 Lee realized:

1 - that the right wing of the Army of Potomac after having successfully forded the Rappahannock at Kelley's Ford and the Rapidan at Germanna's and Ely's was concentrating at Chancellorsville, carrying on an outflanking movement of the Confederate position at Fredericksburg;

2 -- that the Union Army's left wing which were crossing the Rappahannock south of Fredericksburg were developing only a demonstrative action against his right wing.

3 -- based upon the interrogatories of captured Union soldiers he calculated that the outflanking force would not be less than 75,000 men.

To face this situation he had immediately available only a part of Stuart's cavalry, and Gen. Anderson's infantry division.

He pondered the situation and "snap decided" to divide his forces in the presence of the enemy, leaving only10,000 men and 50 cannons at Fredericksburg to keep at bay the Union forces (II Corp of Gen Sedgwick) and deploying the remaining of his division against the enemy's marching wing.

In so doing Lee could line up about 52,000 troops and 170 cannons, reducing the Confederate numerical inferiority in acceptable terms and could attack the advancing Unionists.

The Union Commander, Gen. Hooker, decided to stop the advance, retreating the troops on a strong defensive position in which they immediately entrenched.

As that position was impossible to carry, Lee decided again to further divide his forces in the presence of the enemy, taking one of the boldest decisions of the military history. He sent 32,000 men and 112 cannons under Jackson's command to flank out and strike Hooker's right flanks which was exposed, near Wilderness Church.

The manoeuvre, concealed in the thick woodland and the following attack, were successfully carried out and represented the turning point of the battle, although the fighting lasted until the May 5 when the defeated Unionist crossed the Rappahannock again.
