The more thoughtful and earnest of the people lament the partial decay of that religious sentiment which, inspired by the personal example of stonewall Jackson, and prompted by his discipline a year ago, ran in an epidemic of enthusiasms, through the ranks.

The remarkable conversion, through the influence of the dying Jackson, of the formerly passionate and profane Ewell, who at one time complained that he had to do the swearing for the whole army, produced a powerful impression, especially among the Virginians and Marylanders — an impression which Lee did his best to confirm, and which, though not so plain as it has been, still abides.
