CANCELLED: The "Stonewall Jackson" vs. A.P. Hill Feud (Main Library)
Sunday, March 8, 2020
A Puget Sound Civil War Roundtable event
Rick Solomon will discuss the feud between two of the best generals in the Confederacy’s Army of Northern Virginia: Gen. Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson and Lt. Gen. Ambrose Powell (A.P.) Hill.
This free event, cosponsored by the library and the Puget Sound Civil War Roundtable, begins at 2pm Sunday, 8 March 2020 in the library’s auditorium, 2702 Hoyt Avenue in Everett.
Solomon will describe Hill’s and Jackson’s early history as classmates at West Point; their problems with others before Hill became Jackson’s subordinate; the steps that commanding-Gen. Robert E. Lee took to make peace between them; and, lastly, a deathbed peacemaking of sorts after Jackson was wounded at Chancellorsville.
A longtime Puget Sound Civil War Roundtable member and newsletter editor, Solomon is the past and future president of PSCWRT. He has studied the Civil War for over fifty years, focusing primarily on battles and generals. He recently retired after practicing personal injury law for forty years.
