6: At First Bull Run, Confederate troops under General Bee were being pushed back. He reportedly waved his sword at Jackson’s brigade and called to his men &quot:There stands Jackson like a stone wall.Rally behind the Virginians.&quot: Bee was shot and mortally wounded a few minutes later. Richmond newspaper reports of this incident gave Jackson his nickname.
Jackson was killed at the battle of Chancellorsville.

7: 1 January 1863. Lincoln was worried that European powers (particularly France and Britain), would officially recognize the Confederacy. The Emancipation Proclamation made foreign support from European countries extremely unlikely, for moral reasons.

6. Jackson had ordered his men (first Virginia Brigade) to stand their ground (well they were all lying down) on a hill overlooking the Bull Run battlefield. A confederate officer, whether he was trying to be funny or not, said &quot:There stands Jackson like a stone wall, rally behind the Virginians&quot:. We’ll never know if he intended the remark to be ironic, as they were obviously not standing, or not, since he didn’t survive the war. Jackson was killed while scouting the area between the Union and Confederate pickets, the shots were fired by his own men. This was the night of the first day at Chancellorsville.
7. January 1, 1863. Lincoln signed it to change the goal of the Union cause, and thus place the Confederacy in the awkward position of having to defend slavery, something which their desired allies, Britain and the United Kingdom were strongly against.

6.Jackson earned his popular nickname at the First Battle of Bull Run (1861), where his troops stood against the Union forces “like a stone wall,” according to a colleague, Brig. General Barnard E. Bee.

On May 2, 1863, while leading his forces at Chancellorsville, Jackson was accidentally shot by his own men. He died of complications from the injury eight days later.

7.On July 22, 1862, Lincoln had informed his Cabinet that he intended to free the slaves in states that were in active rebellion. However, they had persuaded him to wait until a Northern victory because it would seem less like a desperate measure. Antietam served that purpose. Five days afterward, on September 22, Lincoln issued the first, or preliminary, Emancipation Proclamation. The final proclamation, issued on January 1, 1863, freed the slaves only in the states that had rebelled: Arkansas, Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and parts of Louisiana and Virginia.

The president issued the proclamation under the powers granted during war to seize the enemies’ property. Lincoln only had the authority to end slavery in the Confederate states, and then the slaves were freed only as the Union armies made their way throughout the South. In the states that remained loyal to the Union slavery was protected by the Constitution. Slavery was only completely abolished throughout the United States by the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which was ratified in 1865.

8.The Union moved toward victory during the first four months of 1865. In mid-January, the capture of Fort Fisher, which guarded Wilmington, North Carolina, closed the final significant Confederate port.

Union success at the Battle of Five Forks on April 1 signaled the end of the long defense of Richmond, after which Lee’s army retreated westward until forced to surrender at Appomattox Court House on April 9.

The North placed roughly 2.2 million men in uniform (180,000 of them blacks), of whom about 640,000 were killed, wounded in battle, or died of disease. Of the 360,000 Northern soldiers who died, two-thirds perished from illnesses such as dysentery, diarrhea, measles, malaria, and typhoid.
