Jackson and Staff

Jackson’s “inner family” became one of the strongest staffs in the Civil War. It included, left to right, Surgeon Hunter McGuire, Adjutant “Sandie” Pendleton, Quartermaster John A. Harmon, aide John Power Smith, and mapmaker “Jed" Hotchkiss. Jackson required all of his staff to be devout, dutiful and early risers.
