Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson was a former U.S. Army Officer, turned Artillery Instructor at Virginia Military Institute, until the outbreak of Civil War in 1861, when he joined the Confederate Army. As a General, Jackson became known as one of the best Confederate commanders. He had a prominent role at the First Battle of Bull Run, and played a key role in winning many significant battles that followed in the Eastern Theater of the war. He was one of General Lee's most dependable officers until he was badly wounded in the arm by friendly fire at the Battle of Chancellorsville in May of 1863. The medically required amputation of the damaged limb led to his untimely death several days later.
