5. Liet. Gen. Thomas J. Jackson and His Family
This 1866 engraving of the Jackson family by William Sartain hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC.

“Southern nationalism is symbolically infused in this engraving of General ‘Stonewall’ Jackson seated with his wife, Anna, and their daughter, Julia. Prominently displayed on the back wall is a portrait of Robert E. Lee and sculpture busts of John C. Calhoun and George Washington. Lee emerged from the war as the South's premier icon; he relied heavily on Jackson's military prowess and leadership up until his lieutenant's death in 1863. Calhoun was perhaps the South's foremost pillar of states' rights and the doctrine of secession, while Washington was held in the highest esteem by both sides as a revolutionary patriot and defender of the Constitution.” — National Portrait Gallery
