The author hadMoreExtracted from The Century Magazine, May 1885, this is an account of personal observation, incidents and behind-the-scenes events of the famous battle of the Civil War by one who was a Confederate Captain of artillery at the time. The author had frequent contact and interaction with Generals Jackson and Barnard Bee prior to and during the battle.

He was present when General Jackson received his hand wound, and later on, with General Bee, at that officers death. — The additional incidents related by Imboden when he was with Jackson on later occasions provide insight into the character of Stonewall which his admirers will appreciate.

— Imboden, who eventually progressed to the rank of Brigadier-General in the Confederate Army, provides a personal perspective which is sometimes overshadowed by the major movements of the battle. He states his purpose of this brief article: My aim in these few pages being only to describe some incidents of the battle which came under my own observation, I have not attempted to sketch the progress of the fight, nor to discuss the controversies growing out of it.

— The author also conclusively answers the question as to why the Confederate commanding Generals Beauregard and Johnston did not follow the Federals on to Washington immediately following the battle of Manassas. Being selected to serve on the board of officers who thoroughly investigated the subject, he convincingly answers that question at the conclusion of this article.
