"Cross Over the River"
Print by Mort Kunstler

Donated by the Confederate Museum

Mr. Kuntlser says: "Let us cross over the river and rest under the shade of the trees." Those were the last words spoken by General "Stonewall" Jackson - and became the inspiration for this painting. Jackson, who was very devout, would pause two or three times a day to pray. This painting, which is set on the banks of a Virginia river, depicts one of those quiet moments.
"In 'Cross Over the River,' I painted Jackson standing at the riverside with his arms folded as he communed with God in a silent, respectful ritual. Nearby we see Little Sorrel grazing, as he patiently waits for his master.

"I used the autumn foliage as a symbolic color scheme to suggest that the end of Jackson's life was drawing near. Jackson is deliberately placed in the shade to accentuate his dark beard and hair in contrast to the sunlight on the trees in the background and the light bouncing off the water."
Black Victorian Brooch
Donated by Victorian Sentiments

This beautiful Victorian brooch features a classic design of a hand holding a flower. In Victorian lore, the hand represents friendship and fidelity, and the rose represents love. This lovely piece is made from dyed pressed horn, a popular substitute for jet in the Victorian era. Black jewelry had many uses including day wear, evening wear, and mourning attire. This pin will perfectly compliment your Victorian outfit or add a classic touch to your modern attire!

Donated by Heather Sheen of Creative Cockades

Shoe rosettes have been popular for many centuries but ladies especially enjoyed them in the Victorian era!
