Lithograph “General Lee At The Grave Of Stonewall Jackson” 1867

Lithograph, “Genl Lee At The Grave Of Stonewall Jackson” (New York: John C. McCrae, 1867). This scene was not taken from life, however it would have appealed greatly to sentimental Army of Northern Virginia veterans during the uncertain days of early Reconstruction. Lee is shown in full Confederate uniform standing by the grave of his “right arm”, General T. J. Jackson.

  1. Sue,

    I am not sure if there was ever an image of Lee kneeling at the grave. Currier and Ives did several images but all with Lee standing. Since Lee never actually visited the grave there would not be any actual photographs.

  2. Hi. Does anyone know where I can purchase an original Currier & Ives engraving of Lee standing next to the headstone of Jackson-as in the above image.

    I hope someone can assist me.
