Vintage Gen. Stonewall Jackson Art Postcard by pecanhillpostcards, $4.99

Trade card from the 1888 Allen & Ginter's Great Generals series.

Stonewall Jackson: Confederate General. Not easy to summarize. Recognized as one of the best tactician's in U.S. history. Shot by his own men, who confused him for a Union cavalry officer. His death served as a huge blow to morale to the South, and led to one less highly skilled general.

Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson arrived at West Point unprepared and uneducated. He failed his first entrance exam. A loner, he worked diligently to improve his class ranking and graduated 17th. in the Class of 1846. His worst grades, like U.S. Grant's, in infantry tactics.

Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, by Matthew Brady c. 1851. National Archives. Accidently killed by his own troops.

Stonewall and entourage where fired upon mistakenly by their own troops. Jackson due to a bullet wound had his left arm amputated. Near full recovery he developed pneumonia which would become his last battle. With his wife and a few close friends at his bedside he went into hysterics, calling his men to arms and giving orders. Then he suddenly stopped, all was quiet then he said: "Let us cross over the river and rest under the shade of the trees." He peacefully slipped away.
