The Stonewall Brigade of the Confederate Army during the American Civil War, was a famous combat unit in United States military history. It was trained and first led by General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson, a professor from Virginia Military Institute.
His severe training program and ascetic standards of military discipline turned enthusiastic but raw recruits into an effective military organization, which distinguished itself from the First Battle of Bull Run in 1861 to Spotsylvania Court House in 1864.
The brigade was formed at Harpers Ferry, April 27, 1861, from the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 27th, and 33rd Virginia Infantry regiments and the Rockbridge Artillery Battery, all units recruited in or near the Shenandoah Valley of VA. Thirteen companies of the brigade were recruited from western counties that would become part of WVA.

Though destined for fame and glory, the Iron or Western Brigade inspired neither awe nor praise at its May 1861 debut in Washington.
The only all-Western infantry brigade serving in the Union’s Eastern Theater armies, it included five colorfully named regiments: The Calico (6th Wisconsin), The Huckleberries (7th Wisconsin), The Babies (19th Indiana), The Ragged Asstetical (2nd Wisconsin), and The Feather-beds (24th Michigan).
Within a matter of months it would become one of the most respected and feared in the Army of the Potomac, thanks largely to its second commander, “a quiet, erect, soldierly appearing little man,” General John Gibbon.
Power point #2 is entitled, The Iron Brigade and contains 16 slides and covers the following:
