DETAILED DESCRIPTION:TURNING POINT: THE MORTAL WOUNDING OF STONEWALL JACKSON AT CHANCELLORSVILLE, MAY 2ND 1863, 9:00 PM. Lieutenant General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson, General Lee's most gifted subordinate, sits astride "Little Sorrel" as he returns from reconnoitering Federal positions in advance of the Confederate divisions. Hoping to press the advantage of his daring flanking attack on the Union Army; he discerns the latest location of the enemy. His small group of horsemen then returns by the Mountain Road to the Southerners' battle lines. As he approaches unannounced, he is greeted by a hail of "friendly fire" from the gun barrels of his fellow Confederates. Tired and nervous rebel infantrymen, expecting a renewed Union cavalry attack, pour deadly fire into the darkness at the sound of the advancing horsemen! Jackson suffers bullet wounds in the right hand and left arm from the "wild fire". He is carried from the field and will later succumb to his injuries. The loss of Jackson through this accidental shooting in the dark woods of Virginia was a huge blow to the Confederate Army and marked a change of fortune for the South in the American Civil War.
