About the Painting
Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson, both devout Christians, attended a religious revival in early 1863 on an estate called “Belvoir,” just south of Fredericksburg, Virginia. They were said to have been “moved to tears” by the eloquence of Reverend B. T. Lacy as he described the homes from which the Confederate army had been drawn. Lee was wearing his uniform of that period, with a standup collar and his three stars with no wreath. Jackson was wearing a new uniform given to him by Gen. J.E.B. Stuart. It had a buff white collar and cuffs and sleeve gilt. He was wearing the butternut cap with trim that was given to him in December 1862.
