Here is quite an article at the University of Virginia website about the Stephen Crane novel “The Red Badge of Courage” and it’s connection to the Battle of Chancellorsvile. It goes into great detail about the various phases of the battle which coincide with Henry Fleming and his unit’s experiences. And the author states interestingly enough that the battle wasn’t specifically mentioned in the book most likely because most common soldiers generally had no idea what town or area they were in until the end of the battle, if they ever did.  A very interesting read.
