Black Powder: Epic Battles - American Civil War Confederate Command
Robert E. Lee: The son of "Light Horse Harry" Lee, an officer who served in a previous rebellion, Robert Edward Lee graduated top in his class at West Point at the start of his military career. He was an accomplished officer and had served across the country and provided staunch service during the Mexican War. When Virginia seceded Lee felt bound to his native state and resigned his commission in the Regular Army, offering his services to Virginia and the fledgling Confederacy. Famously, Lee was offered command of the Union forces about to head south, but felt honour bound and declined.
Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson: Jackson is one of most able Confederate commanders and is only eclipsed, perhaps, by Lee. Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson was an instructor at the Virginia Military Institute when war broke out and offered his services to his native state, Virginia. At First Manassas he won immortality when his brigade held its ground in the face of a heavy Union assault. A fellow officer, noting Jackson’s brigade and trying to rally his own men, called out: “Look, there stands Jackson – like a stone wall!” The name stuck.
Also included is a HQ standard Bearer.
