Robert Lewis Dabney
Robert Lewis Dabney, chaplain to the 18th Virginia Infantry Regiment, poses for a photograph during his brief stint as adjutant, or chief of staff, to Confederate general Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson. This oval image is a detail from a larger composite photograph that shows Jackson surrounded by his staff officers. The composite was created by Vannerson & Jones, a Richmond photographic firm that specialized in reprinting images of Confederate leaders in the immediate aftermath of the war.
