This chapter details Stonewall Jackson's final movements on the battlefield, explaining what happened to Lee's great lieutenant in the chaotic woods west of Chancellorsville on the night of May 2. It presents a reconstruction of the general's reconnaissance along the Orange Plank Road and smaller side roads; the fateful volley from a North Carolina regiment that wreaked havoc on two parties of Confederate horsemen; and the painful injuries Jackson suffered while being carried to safety.
