Stonewall Jackson

Mortally wounded at Chancellorville, Confederate General "Stonewall" Jackson lost his left arm. General Robert E. Lee would remark that "he lost his left arm, and I have lost my right". Eight days after being wounded, Jackson developed pneumonia and died. His last words before dying: "Let us cross the river and rest beneath the shade of the trees".
