Confederate Sunset (detail)


Confederate Sunset

All admire his genius and great deeds; no one could love the man for himself. He seems to be cut off from his fellow men and to commune with his own spirit only, or with spirits of which we do not know…. Whenever he moves about on his old sorrel, with faded uniform and weather-stained cap slouched down over his left eye, and one shoulder some two inches higher than the other, most men shout with enthusiasm….It is a saying in the army if a shout is heard, “There goes Jackson or a rabbit!”
