final triumph of the newly-established Confederacy. This feeling animated the entire Confederate camp, and the army of Johnston stood boldly and confidently awaiting the first hostile move of McClellan from his entrenchments along the Potomac. Ton convinced him that a considerable body of the enemy was near at hand. Nor was he mistaken in this conjecture. General Johnston had sent out from his camp at Centreville nearly all the wagons of his army into upper Fairfax and lower Loudoun to s wagons were scattered about the country gathering hay and corn, while the enemy could easily interpose between him and Johnston's camp at Centreville.

Let us determine to die here, and we will conquer! Jackson not only stood the shock of the heavy attack made on him, but did give them the bayonet, checked the onward tide of McDowell's victory, and held his position until Kirby Smith and Early came up on the flank. Jeb Stuart made a successful cavalry charge, Johnston and Beauregard had time to hurry up other troops, and a great Confederate victory was snatched from impending disaster. The name which the gallant Bee, about to yield up his noble life, gave Jackson that day, clung to him ever afterwards, and he will be known in history not by the name Thomas Jonathan Jackson, which his parents gave him, but as Stonewall Jackson. And yet the name was a misnomer. Thunderbolt, Tornado or Cyclone would be more appropriate to Jackson's character as a soldi
