On the Shoulders of Giants
Frayser's Farm, June 30, 1862

On June 30, 1862, a Richmond artilleryman was witness to one of the first meetings between Lee and Jackson. Confederates were driving McClellan's army southward. The conference between the two Southern generals was, as always, short and direct. Jackson then saluted and left to take his divisions toward White Oak Swamp.
