  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    Joe Hooker.  "Fightin'" Joe Hooker took command of the Army of the Potomac in the spring of 1863, shortly after the disaster at the Battle of Fredericksburg.  His new plan for striking Lee's forces required the most powerful cavalry wing that the Union had ever put in the field.  The cavalry, whose timidity had made them the laughingstock of the army, was reorganized to accommodate a centralized command structure and refitted with some of the most advanced firearms available.  Over the coming months, the battles of Kelly's Ford and Brandy Station would prove that Hooker's reforms had worked.
