This double equestrian portrait depicts the parting Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson on the eve of the Battle of Chancellorsville, one of the most important battle of the Civil War. Lee is shown seated on his famous horse, Traveller, wearing his well recognized wide brimmed hat and long overcoat. To Lee's proper right, Jackson, dressed in his Confederate Army uniform, is seated atop his horse, Little Sorrel. Jackson has just signaled his horse to leave, Little Sorrel's head is raised, and his front left leg is raised to step and turn away.
