Why, aside from a propensity for narcissism, was Hooker so confident? Hooker had used spies, analysts, and even hot air balloons to compile a vast amount of intelligence about Lee’s army He had discerned, for example, that Lee had only 61,000 men to Hooker’s own 134,000 Buoyed by his superior numbers, Hooker covertly moved 70,000 of his men fifteen miles up and across the river, and then ordered them to sneak back down to position themselves behind Lee’s army In effect, Hooker had cut off the Confederate soldiers in front and behind They were trapped Satisfied with his advantage, Hooker became convinced that Lee’s only option was to retreat to Richmond, thus assuring a Union victory Yet Lee, despite his disadvantages of both numbers and position, did not retreat Instead, he moved his troops into position to attack Union soldiers who tried to warn Hooker that Lee was on the offensive were dismissed as cowards Having become convinced that Lee had no choice but to retreat, Hooker began to ignore reality When Lee’s army attacked the Union soldiers at 5:00 p.m., they were eating supper, completely unprepared for battle They abandoned their rifles and fled as Lee’s troops came shrieking out of the brush, bayonets drawn Against all odds, Lee won the Battle of Chancellorsville, and Hooker’s forces withdrew in defeat 36 Based on information in the text, it can be concluded that Hooker lost the Battle of Chancellorsville mostly because of his A: faulty information B: vanity C: overconfidence D: ignorance 37 The contrast drawn between Lee and Hooker in paragraph is intended to A: showcase the different backgrounds and personal histories of these two enemy soldiers B: provide support for the idea that Lee was a more virtuous person than Hooker, and therefore a better military commander C: imply that these men fundamentally differed in their approaches to nearly everything, including battle D: prove that two men with very different values could end up in similar positions of power 38 In paragraph 3, the author quotes Hooker as saying, “My plans are perfect And when I start to carry them out, may God have mercy on Bobby Lee, for I shall have none.” The author most likely includes this quote in order to A: provide an example of the way language has changed since 1863 B: foreshadow Hooker’s defeat at the hands of Lee’s army C: demonstrate Hooker’s belief in his own infallibility D: reveal that Hooker was a deeply religious man in spite of his lifestyle 39 Based on its use in paragraph 3, it can be inferred that the word propensity belongs to which of the following word groups?

A: 70,000 B: 134,000 C: 61,000 D: 73,000 41 As used in paragraph 4, buoyed most nearly means A: heartened B: floated C: strengthened D: anchored 42 According to the author, Hooker’s advantages going into the Battle of Chancellorsville included A: numbers and position only B: numbers, position and strategy C: position only D: position and strategy only 43 As used in paragraph 4, buoyed most nearly means A: sensory words B: dialogue C: vivid details D: specific examples 44 If this passage were to continue, which of the following would most likely be the first sentence of the next paragraph?
