    This painting was one of a series called 'Confederate Generals' which featured on the boxes of Battleground Cigars. Others include Lee and George Pickett.

    This is a great photo but it doesn't show exactly what I'm looking for. I'm interested in the hind legs of Little Sorrel (yes, I really am). I'm looking for a statue that shows the horse with the correct gait. He was a pacer, not a trotter, and I vaguely remember from seeing this statue years ago that Mrs. Fraser did have the legs correct, but I'm not sure.The very best (in my opinion) of the Jackson equestrian statues is the Keck statue in Charlottesville and Martinburg has a wonderful Little Sorrel, but he's trotting. Thanks for your help!

    Troiani prints are rising in value. Some of his earlier popular prints can bring $1000-1200.00 now. I just have got the Rick Reeves print Darkest of all Decembers depicting Hood with the 29th Alabama in Redoubt # 4 at Nashville. I have several Rick Reeves prints.

    Other than these 2 pics there is not much to go on. If they are so determined to remove the statues the Battlefield at Gettysburg might be a favorable place to rehome them but I civilwar statue baltim.jpg don't know what sort of restrictions they have there concerning new statues etc.

    Thanks! I remembered correctly! Little Sorrel's legs are in more or less a pacing gait. I don't know if Mrs. Fraser did it accidentally or if she just thought it looked good. You've answered a question I've had for a long time.

    A larger look at artist Tom Gallo's Fatal Full Moon depicting the last or "cracker box" conference between Lee and Jackson at Chancellorsville the night of May 1-2, 1863 - this is mine, thanks to the generosity of @War Horse (Mike), and I just got it back from the frame shop in time for Christmas! I had to do a bit of re-arranging in the tight quarters of my limited wall space but now have a regular Stonewall Jackson Corner in my living room as can be seen below. (Sorry for the blurry photo though!)

    Jackson by Opdenaker.jpg

    Another print I hadn't seen until just now while searching for something else depicts Jackson at First Manassas wearing his VMI professor's uniform by artist Jim Opdenaker.

    I haven't seen this one before either. It's a really good representation of Little Sorrel, but unfortunately Little Sorrel was not in action at First Manassas. I like it anyway, though.

    I'm not especially fond of the mid-war appearance of his troops either, but I was only guessing this represented First Manassas. I believe he changed out of the professor's uniform in May, 1862 when ladies of Staunton gifted him with a proper Confederate uniform coat when he visited there briefly on his way to McDowell and the second battle of the valley Campaign so maybe this is supposed to be around that time instead.

    I think that's true, although by then the blue coat would have been more than a little threadbare, not like the fine specimen in the painting. Of course, the painting doesn't have to represent an actual battle. He began to use Little Sorrel almost exclusively by September 1861 so he would have been in blue from then until the spring. I don't know much about the evolution of the flag, so maybe we can figure the date from that.

    General Jackson by Augusto Ferrer-Dalmau.jpg

    Another depiction I'd never seen before that I really like is this one of Jackson and members of his staff - who they're intended to be I can't tell, but suppose the one at left to be a generic staff officer, while the one at right is obviously an artillery officer - at some unnamed battle. My only real criticism of this work by a Spanish (?) artist who seems to be named Augusto Ferrer-Dalmau is that they all look too neat and perfectly regulation to truly represent Jackson or any of his staff members!

    Last I heard, City of Baltimore was still looking for somebody to take the statue off their hands....

    NPS park at Chancellorsville seems to be the logical place for relocation.

    That is a great painting. Last year I was fortunate enough to stand at the exact spot where that Last Council was held. This is how it looks now:
