Our gallant little army is increasing in numbers,

In the same we that he considered his own life as an instrument fit for use by the living God, Jackson esteemed the army he led to be such an instrument as well.

“Our gallant little army is increasing in numbers, and my prayer is that it may be an army of the living God as well of its country.”
– Jackson to his wife on April 7, 1862
