Event wounding, death and burial of Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson, 1863
Provenance James Power Smith served as Lt. Gen. T. J. "Stonewall" Jackson's Aide-de-camp and was riding with him when Jackson was mortally wounded at Chancellorsville in May 1863. Smith's jacket is stained with Jackson's blood. Curators found a list of stragglers from an Alabama unit dated May 1864 in the jacket's lining, suggesting that Smith wore the jacket a year after Jackson's death.
