I thought his death so very sad that I remember details of it, but not the book that I read about it in: I'm guessing it was Shelby Foote.  His aide noticed the blood, and said, "Are you wounded, Sir?" and ASJ relied, "Yes, and I'm afraid quite badly, too."  The aide didn't know to apply a tournaquet, and was trying to treat ASJ with brandy as he bled to death.
