Perhaps there has never been a military leader like Robert E. Lee. Perhaps there never will be. How he valued and depended upon Stonewall Jackson, whom Lee praised as "his right arm." And after Jackson, who would compare to Lee's "Old War Horse" - General James Longstreet?

The terrain is typical of the Virginia woodlands near Fredericksburg. The hardwood forest has not leafed-out yet and adds a distant, somber tone to the background. Near the Confederate front line, Lee and Jackson - joined by Longstreet - observed the distant enemy from a broomstraw clearing amid a sparse stand of Virginia pines. Although they could not know it at the time, these three exceptional Confederate commanders were in the sunset of their time together. Chancellorsville, Lee's greatest victory, would be followed by the decisive Southern defeat at Gettysburg, and the sunset of success would fall on the Confederacy.
