Confederate General "Stonewall" Jackson Mounted on Little Sorrel, No.2

Price: $120.00


W. Britain

One of the best-known Confederate commanders, Jackson played a prominent role in nearly all military engagements in the Eastern Theater until his death. As a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, he served with distinction during the Mexican–American War. Commanding a brigade at the First Battle of Bull Run, his implacable nature and stubborn resolve – along with an opportune deployment of crucial reinforcements – allowed his Virginians to withstand a fierce Union assault. In this context Barnard Elliott Bee Jr. compared him to a “stone wall,” hence his enduring nickname. While on a nighttime reconnoiter at the Battle of Chancellorsville, Jackson and his party were mistaken for Union cavalry and were cut down by their own pickets. He died eight days later, 10 May 1863.
