    Answer:

    Longstreet, Hill, and Ewell. Many have considered the stunning Confederate victory at Chancellorsville, maybe Lee's greatest, to be a pyrrhic victory. Stonewall Jackson, mortally wounded by friendly fire on the second day of the battle, would later die and Lee would lose a key lieutenant. Needing to fill that important leadership gap and acknowledging that expanding his corps from two to three would improve corps performance, Lee would undertake a reorganization of his army prior to the Gettysburg campaign in 1863. Lee would retain James Longstreet as the First Corps commander and would then appoint Richard Ewell and A.P. Hill as the Second and Third corps commanders.
