Amartya Bag

Amartya Bag (bn : অমর্ত্য বাগ) is a legal professional and a proud Wikipedian. He is a Veteran Editor II, Autopatroller, Reviewer and Rollbacker on English Wikipedia. He came across Wikipedia while searching for some material on Julius Caesar for his school project in the summer of 2005 and he landed on Wikipedia and has been mesmerised by the wonderful contribution of some volunteers. Since then he continued to edit under IPs, mostly related to his place of residence. He is an active registered Wikipedian since 30 December 2005. He resides in a small but beautiful town of Cooch Behar, in the Indian state of West Bengal. He is currently residing in New Delhi - where he works in a legal education firm. He has a degree in Integrated B.A. LL. B. with honours specialisation in Intellectual property law from KIIT Law School, Bhubaneswar. He has a interest in editing pages related to North Bengal, West Bengal, Protected areas of India, Indian law and intellectual property law and his edits are confined to these fields. However in near future he may diversify to some other fields or may be helping in fighting vandalism. Moreover he thinks that "Wikipedia is one of the biggest charity organisation because no donation can be as big as the donation of free knowledge". He is proud to be one in the charity, for the prosperity and growth of knowledge and the human society.

Chancellorsville Campaign

Dead Confederate troops behind the stone wall of Marye's Heights, killed during the Second Battle of Fredericksburg, Virginia, part of the eastern portion of the May 1863 Chancellorsville Campaign. At the wall, Confederate forces pushed back two waves of Union Army assaults before being overrun and forced to withdraw. Though the Union forces under Maj. Gen. John Sedgwick attempted to march on Chancellorsville, they were delayed by Confederate attacks and, the following morning, driven back.

Fought from April 30 to May 6, 1863, the Chancellorsville campaign saw Gen. Robert E. Lee's Confederate Army of Northern Virginia repel a force twice its size, Union Army Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker's Army of the Potomac. However, in doing so they took numerous casualties and lost Lt. Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson to friendly fire.
