Jackson Rallies His Men

As the Confederate line broke, "Stonewall" Jackson stood firm and many of his soldiers witnessed the general as he rallied his troops while other officers motivated their men by pointing out the presence of their commanding general.

"I recollect well his attempt to draw his long cavalry sabre to help him stop the rout, when he found it so rusted from non use, that he could not withdraw it... so he deliberately unsnapped it from his belt holdings and used it scabbard and all on the heads of the fleeing panic stricken troops."
Jed Hotchkiss, Jackson's staff

"The escape of Jackson from death was miraculous. He was in the thickest of the combat, at very short range."
Gen. William B. Taliaferro
