Description: 

Virginia was the scene of many of the great battles of the Civil War. Because his mother was from the state, in 1861 Anse walks "all the way" there from Mississippi, and as part of "Stonewall Jackson's army" fights in at least two of those battles: "the Valley" (a reference to Jackson's 1862 campaign in the Shenandoah Valley), and "Chancellorsville," the 1863 battle in which Jackson was killed (54). Anse was also there at "Appomattox" on "that morning in 'Sixty-five" when Lee surrendered to Grant (54), so it can be assumed he fought in Lee's other battles too, both inside and outside Virginia.
