In my mind, for a period prior to Jackson's death, Jackson was more than Lee's "right arm",  he was one half of an almost unfathomly effective and brillant military duo.

Poopoo, Miss Joanie. Stonewall occasionally performed very well. Unfortunately, there were times that he didn't perform at all. I see Longstreet, A.P. Hill and "Baldy" Ewell as more long-term stalwarts than Jackson. Jackson was a hollow icon. He had his qualities and, if he'd lived, would certainly have meant trouble for Meade and Grant, but his reputation is overrated.
