Where was Jackson?
Away off from an unexpected quarter came a dull heavy boom—nearer and nearer.
Hooker's men could not stand it. Great God!
There was Jackson, as Fitz Lee would say, singing, Old Joe Hooker can't you come out to-night?
But Hooker did not want to come that way. Then came the terrible fall, when the Confederacy heard its own requiem in the funeral dirge of the great Jackson; but Lee, that incomparaLee, that incomparable chieftian, pressed on with one division around thirteen hundred men; old Jeb Stuart rushed on, and terrible was the story to tell.
Think of Robert E. Lee with one division playing against the whole Federal army, and you will know something of this great military feat.
Lee was a great man, truly great, modest, unassuming, noble, brave; but I cannot pause to tell the story of his life; it would need greater eloquence than mine—that man without a peer.
