Robert Lewis Dabney, Life and Commands of Lieutenand- General Thomas J. Jackson, Chapter 14: the Richmond campaign. (search)
Chapter 14: the Richmond campaign. After the victory of Winchester in May, General Jackson had requested his friend Hon. A. R. Boteler to represent to the authorities near Richmond, his desire for reinforcements, that he might carry the war toward the Federal Capital. Tell them, said he, that I have now fifteen thousand men. I should have forty thousand; and with them I would invade the North. When this message was delivered to General Lee, the Commander-in-Chief, he replied: But he must help me to drive these people away from Richmond first. Thus it appears that his sagacious mind had already formed the design of concentrating the army of Jackson with his own, in order to take the aggressive against McClellan.

During the first two months of his connexion with it, he was respected and obeyed; for his dignity, bearing, and soldierly qualities were such as to ensure this everywhere; but he inspired no enthusiasm. It was at Winchester, when General Jackson assigned him the command of his left wing, that his prowess broke forth to the apprehension of his men, like the sun bursting through clouds. The heroism with which he shared their dangers, and the mastery with which he directed their strength, placed him thenceforth in their hearts. At five o'clock in the afternoon, the struggle began in earnest, by the advance of the Federal infantry against Early, through the Indian corn. This General, handling his regiments

He therefore complied at once, and beginning his march from Winchester, November 22nd, in eight days transferred his corps with an interval of two d the pious. The new year brought him the sad news of the re-occupation of Winchester by the Federal army. His friends there were now subjected to the tyranny andking to the history of this man; and when, after the fall of General Jackson, Winchester was recaptured by his corps under General Ewell, Milroy crowned his infamy byly home, where everything is sanctified!
