In this building we saw ... a fine oil painting representing Stonewall Jackson's last interview with General Lee. Both men are on horseback. Jackson has just ridden up, and is accosting Lee. The picture is very valuable, on account of the portraits, which are authentic. But, like many other historical picture, it means nothing without its label. And one label will fit it as well as another: First Interview Between Lee and Jackson. ... Jackson Introducing Himself to Lee. Jackson Accepting Lee's Invitation to Dinner. ... Jackson Reporting a Great Victory. Jackson Asking Lee for a Match. ... a good legible label is usually worth, for information, a ton of significant attitude and expression in a historical picture.
