This print depicts Gen. Winfield S. Hancock and and his staff. The term "fighting general" would aptly apply to Hancock. "He is magnificent in appearance, lordly, but cordial," a member of his staff wrote. Hancock differed "from other officers I have served with in being always in sight during action."
By any measure of the war, the greatest Southern victories were the product of the Lee-Jackson relationship. Both were men of character. Both were devoted to a shared faith. Both were uniquely gifted military commanders. Lee granted Jackson an exceptional degree of command freedom, and Jackson faithfully exercised that freedom to maximum results. Victory became the expected achievement of every endeavor by Lee and Jackson. In the spring of 1863, the remarkable relationship would end with Jackson's untimely death following his wounding at Chancellorsville. Lee would continue to display his unsurpassed military genius, but never again would be blessed with a subordinate like Jackson. "Stonewall" Jackson was irreplaceable. The Jackson and Lee relationship was build on more than ability - it was founded on faith, mutual respect and the discipline of character. Such was the legacy of Jackson and Lee.
This print depicts the High Tide at Gettysburg on July 3, 1863. Most of the flags shown in this painting are standard Confederate battle flags, with the 9th Virginia Infantry seen in the center and the 56th Virginia Infantry found in the background. To the right, is the regimental flag of the 72nd Pennsylvania and the state issue flag of the 71st Pennsylvania. The 72nd was a semi-zouave regiment, but had lost most of their distinctive uniform by this time. The only remnants were the low, white canvas gaiters containing four buckles on each side. These can be seen on two of the soldiers in the right background. The Cloverleaf and number 69 on the hat of the soldier fighting in the right foreground identifies him as a soldier of the 69th PA.

The largest and costliest of the Seven Days battles near Richmond was Gaines’ Mill. Lee’s first victory came when the Texas Brigade broke the Federal line but incurred great losses in the process. The next morning, Jackson and Lee surveyed the ground where the Confederates had charged. Jackson exclaimed, “The men who carried this position were soldiers indeed!”
