ositions where they had been held to follow up the Confederate attack, and sending them to the support of the small force that was holding back the Federals.
After dispatching troops to threaten the Union left, Johnston and Beauregard galloped at full speed to the scene of the battle.
They arrived about noon — at the moment when Bee's brigade was fleeing across the valley from the hail of Federal bullets.
As the frightened men were running in the utmost disorder, General Bee, seeing Thomas J. Jackson's brigade calmly waiting the onset, exclaimed to his men, Look at Jackson; there he stands like a stone wall!
The expression spread to the army and to the world, and that invincible soldier has since been known as Stonewall Jackson.
Beauregard and Johnston found it a herculean task to rally the fleeing men and re-form the lines, but they succeeded at length; the battle was renewed, and from noon till nearly three o'clock it raged with greater fury than before.
