I'm torn on how he would have fought the battle. I can see it playing out both ways as far as aggressiveness on Hooker's part. He would want to redeem himself after Chancellorsville. So would he realize how good a position he was in defensively or want to deal a counterblow and get ppayback for Chancellorsville.

Also would Sickles do his stupid advance with a commander like Hooker in charge? I kind of wonder if Sickles advanced because he thought Meade inexperienced in overall command and didn't know what he was doing sort of thing.
