Packin' 'em in at Chancellorsville
If you are a subscriber to Blue & Gray Magazine (or a BN mag browser), check out the battle maps on pages 60 and 61 of just arrived Issue XXIX, #4 [Chancellorsville Action from April 28-May 2, 1863: Danger in the Dark Woods by Frank A. O'Reilly]. Both are truly striking full-page images of one of the most bizarre and dramatic moments in any Civil War battle. That's some impressive unit density (and these are early 1863 sized regiments not the skeletons of 1864 onward) as well as research dedicated enough to confidently position them all.
