Description

Depicts a scene of quiet piety and great reverence in an army camp. Shows most of the men with their heads bowed in prayer, some weeping. Stonewall Jackson, a man known for his great religiosity, appears to be delivering a sermon to the men. Also shows a black man kneeling beside Jackson. Volck made a sketch of the actual event at Ball's Bluff, Virginia, which he later used to make this etching. Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson (1824-63) Confederate general during the American Civil War
