Much of McGuire's account is included in the Time-Life Voices of the Civil War volume Chancellorsville; here's most of the content in a thread I recently made about the subject: https://www.civilwartalk.com/threads/may-10-1863-the-death-of-stonewall-jackson.145734/I have most of the biographies of Stonewall Jackson as well as several on Chancellorsville. One account that I have not seen mentioned is Dr. Hunter McGuire's brief account of the wounding and last days of Jackson. What better source of how the General spent his last few days and especially hours than from the surgeon who attended him?
Another good read is from Chris Mackowski on the Mortal Wounding of Stonewall Jackson. Chris is one of the lead historians at Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania battlefields and a oft-requested speaker. I'm actually attending his lecture on this topic next week.
