    Description

    Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson Carte de Visite.
    2.5" x 4", with a Lumpkin & Tomlinson, Richmond imprint along with a blue George Washington two-cent revenue stamp on the verso. The original of this image was taken by Nathaniel Routzahn while Jackson was in Winchester in November 1862. This image is a vignette bust portrait version of the original. Jackson had two portraits made at Routzahn's studio in Winchester. There are only a handful of photographs of Jackson that exist, due to the fact that the general had a strong aversion to having his picture taken. This image, though, was a favorite of his wife, Mary Anna Jackson.

    Thomas Jonathan Jackson (1824-1863) is probably the best-known Confederate general after Robert E. Lee. He earned his nickname "Stonewall" after his bravery at the First Battle of Bull Run in July 1861 when he rushed his troops forward in order to close a gap in the line against a determined Union counter attack. Upon observing Jackson, one of his fellow generals reportedly said, "Look men, there is Jackson standing like a stone wall!" His storied career was cut-short when he was accidentally shot by his own men after the Battle of Chancellorsville in 1863 and died of complications from his wounds. His name would be forever more associated with Southern mythology and "The Lost Cause". From the Bret J. Formichi American Civil War Rarities Collection.

    Condition: Uneven toning and foxing throughout, with slightly worn edges and corners. A one-inch pencil mark at the lower left of the albumen. Some minor soiling around the edges and a pencil notation on verso. Overall good.
