Description Buff-colored leather gauntlet for the right hand.
Material leather

Owned Thomas J. Jackson [Stonewall Jackson]
Event wounding, death and burial of Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson, 1863
Provenance "This gauntlet was worn by Lieutenant General Thomas J. Jackson. It was brought with the rest of the General's clothing to Richmond where his body lay in state in the Capitol until its burial in Lexington. The gauntlet is believed to have been worn by Jackson on the night he was mortally wounded."

Note: as Jackson was wounded in the right hand, it is impossible that he was wearing this gauntlet when he was wounded, though he could have had it with him.
