- Rider(s):Devens, Charles
Assigned command of the first division in the XI Corps, Devens was again wounded, this time at the Battle of Chancellorsville in May 1863. His inattention of the exposed right flank of the division helped Stonewall Jackson launch his flank attack on the corps. Devens’s failure to react to early warnings of Jackson’s flanking movement may have been due to his heavy drinking in an attempt to dull the pain of a previous injury.
