Where was Jackson shot?

Notes

Class 158— Death of Stonewall Jackson

May 6, 2015
Jackson’s views/beliefs/actions:


  • Jackson liked war-“delightful excitement” he attained in combat

  • ordered the bravest shot down-weaken all of those whose discipline draws on that bravery

  • courage was equated only with success, and command error would be ruthlessly defined as a defect in courage

  • His cool courage, spare personal style, and battlefield victories exerted a mesmeric hold on his men

  • “He places no value on human life, caring for nothing so much as fighting, unless it be praying.”

  • For many on both sides, Stonewall Jackson was the war’s highest exemplification of courage.”

Chancellorsville:



  • It is fitting that Jackson did die in the war. He once stated, “Each of us has his duty to perform, without regard to consequences; we must perform it and trust in providence.”

  • Jackson was riding through dense vegetation

  • Encountered intense small arms fire from the Confederate 18th North Carolina regiment under the command of Major John D. Barry who gave the order to fire

  • Jackson was struck once in the right hand and twice in the left arm and was almost unhorsed

  • Taken to Dr. Hunter McGuire, considered the South’s leading Surgeon

  • Jackson given standard first aid: arterial compression, whiskey, and morphine

  • Left humorous (upper arm bone) and brachial artery were damaged and required amputation two inches below the soldier. Jackson was given chloroform

  • Just before his death in a stat of delirium Jackson says “Order A.P. Hill to prepare for action! Pass the infantry to the front rapidly! Tel. Major Hawks….” Jackson stops and a smile comes across his face and he says in an expression of relief “Let us cross over the river, and rest under the shade of the trees.”

  • The Union soldiers at Chancellorsville hear the following statement, “In view of the fact that [Stonewall Jackson] was wounded by our division and also as a mark of respect to a gallant Christian soldier the division will receive the announcement [of his death] with uncovered heads.”

  • Major John D. Barry, the man that gave the order to fire on Jackson, died two years after the war at the age of 27. His family said that he died of depression and guilt from giving the order to fire on Jackson.

Why is General Lee so far North?



  • Railroad in Harrisburg

  • Victory on northern soil could bring in European aid or help end war

  • Turn East and attack Washington, D.C.

General Lee (CSA) vs. General Meade (USA)



  • Lee’s Plans

    • outflank the Union; frontal attack

  • Meade’s Plans

    • Keep the high ground

Day 1:


  • Accident

    • Confederate troops ran into Union horsemen on the Chambersburg Pike, northwest of town. Each side sent for help. The rebels got there first, and by afternoon had driven the Union south of town, where they rallied into defensive positions


Day 2:

  • By day two 150,000 Union and Confederate troops had converged on the little Pennsylvania town. The southerners occupied a line Seminary Ridge. The northern men waited along Cemetery Ridge( in a fish hook defensive line) - a slightly more elevated crest that ran south toward two hills, Big and Little Round Top. Lee's plan called for an assault on the left, or southernmost, end of the Union line.

  • Devil’s Den

  • Little Round Top

    • Bayonet Charge
