ok first i never said Lee destroyed the AOP at chancellorsville, their presence at gettysburg is proof of that but for an army of maybe 50,000 effectives to nearly destroy an army of 120,000-130,000 states that it is all too possible for Lee with 75000 effectives to destroy an army of 95000. If jackson would have launched his attack earlier and if he hadnt been wounded then its very likely Lee would of at the very least destroyed a large portion of the AOP. A battle isnt only about numbers more then anything it's about morale, and with Lee's army having never been defeated (unless you consider antietam a defeat)i'd say he had the army with the highest morale especially when watching the entire union right flank rout
