I'm starting to research General Hooker.  From what I know of him he seemed to be a very capable Division and Corps commander.  Chancellorsville was his first battle leading the Army of the Potomac and seems to have made him uneasy.  Being knocked senseless by the cannonball didn't help him much.  What do you all think about if he had been at Gettysburg....would the result have been the same?  After his resignation he did well at Chattanooga so he definitely had skills in leading troops.
