Other exiled small groups, making their assigned raids and destroyed on the way bridges and everything they come across, May 5 is also connected to at Thompson's Cross-Rod with Stonemanom, which collect all of them, except for units Kilpatrika and Davis stepped back through Rakkon -Ford and Kellys Ford and 8 May joined with Hooker. Despite the apparent success of his raid, this can not be considered particularly successful. railways damage was very minor and easily corrected; Expedition seized large tracts of land with almost no noise, and yet almost no prisoners had been captured; moral impressions are not produced any. During the production of the raid played out a three-day Battle of Chenlorsville in which southerners won a brilliant victory, and so got out of a very difficult situation. Chief of the Plan of them was a very bold and risky and largely owes its success to the absence of cavalry on the right flank of northerners. It was decided to bypass the right flank Hooker made the Jackson case. At the same time the already weak number of southerners army was divided into two parts; it is clear that the movement to succeed, had to be made very quickly and secretly, and it was only possible in the absence of cavalry northerners. If instead of Stoneman production almost aimless raid was on Hooker's right flank, then, of course, Jackson's army as it moves through difficult terrain would be encircled and destroyed. In fact, they made their enveloping movement quite discreetly and with great success. Thus, Stonemana raid is an example of an unsuccessful and untimely use of a very good idea. If Stoneman, coming in Lee's rear, turned north and boldly moved against his position, then, at least, would have produced a very useful diversion and, perhaps, would have appeared on the battlefield in the most decisive moment when the attack of his 10,000 riders from the rear could be a consequence of the complete defeat of the southerners.
