He is certainly not wearing a blouse of a field officer or higher so I doubt it is him.

Glad that someone found the photo in question because I do a lot of reading on Jackson and this one had me scratchin' my head.  At first, I thought from the description that it might have been the scene where the weary man was overseeing his troops & artillery make their way up some mountain en route to 1st Bull Run (that was one of the scenes played out in the G & G movie also).  Upon further recollection however,  I think that particular scene was a sketch that someone had made.  I also looked at Virginia Tech and VMI sites and couldn't find the picture.

At any rate, I tend to agree with those of you who shed some doubt on whether the man in the photograph is indeed Jackson.  Although I quit scratchin' my head over it,  I'm still curious as to who is in the picture.  I will try to look it up on  the L of C and Smithsonian collection - some of these pictures are captioned, and some are not.  Thanks.

i know thats only a side view but that really doesnt look like Jackson. was Jackson really that social with his soldiers? i dont think he was but others might have different thoughts on him.

Ole, Jackson could have a casual conversation with someone. In fact the only person they know of during the war who could get him to smile was JEB Stuart. He and Jackson were close friends and were seen many times "Chewin' the fat" together.
