Lincoln then replaced Burnside with General Joseph Hooker. This proved to be yet another failure.
*General Lee had half the men that Hooker had yet managed to cut the Union forces to pieces

However, there was one success for the Union, General "stonewall" Jackson returned to his patrol and a Confederate soldier thought he was a Union soldier and shot him in the arm. His arm was amputated his arm and he later caught pneumonia and died. Surrender at Appomattox General Lee could not hold out any more.
