Bigelow’s work is thought to be the ultimate study of the Chancellorsville Campaign. It contains 47 maps and illustrations (all present) and is a lengthy narrative containing over 500 pages. First published by Yale press, there were 100 copies numbered although many escaped numbering. This is probably the best reprint effort I have encountered.
