— First Battle of Manassas —

On the brow of the hill Brig. Gen. Bernard Bee was desperately trying to rally his men when he caught sight of Thomas J. Jackson with fresh troops here at the edge of the pine thicket.

"Look!" Bee shouted. "There stands Jackson like a stone wall! Rally behind the Virginians!"

The nickname spread rapidly through the Confederate Army and throughout the South. "Stonewall" Jackson was on his way to becoming a legend.

Jackson's Line
You are standing in the center of Stonewall Jackson's line - thirteen pieces of artillery, with infantry on the ground behind the cannon and concealed in the woods. Along the rise left and right of Henry House, Ricketts' and Griffin's Union batteries were starting to duel Jackson's artillery.

Two hundred yards to your left the 33rd Virginia Infantry was preparing the charge that would ignite the day's most violent fighting.
