This scene depicts a conference between Gen. Robt. E. Lee, commander-in-Chief of the Confederate army, and his ablest lieutenant, Gen. Thomas J. (Stonewall) Jackson, preceding the battle of Chancellorsville, May, 1863, and that terrible catastrophe which plunged the whole South into mourning, and so seriously affected the destiny of their cause. Gen Jackson, with his staff, had ridden forward in the dusk of evening to reconnoitre; on their return they were mistaken for the enemy, and a volley was poured into them, and the brave and great soldier, who had so often led them to victory, fell pierced by the men who would have given their lives for his. (See cards Nos. 54, 55, 57, 58 and 59.)
