Soon afterward, Lee again proved his strength by defending Fredericksburg from a major attack, this time climbing a hill to make sure his army could attack from above. He continued to win many major battles, most importantly the battle of Chancellorsville, in which he and fellow General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson blindsided the Union's army from both sides, and decimated it.
