Exchange of Letters Between Stonewall Jackson, Gen. Shields, and Gen. Nathaniel P. Banks 1862, Discussing the Battle of Port Republic

Jackson discusses his refusal to exchange Union prisoners, because Union troops have been firing on his hospital staff. Jackson letters are very rare. Includes two additional letters from another officer also dealing with the failed exchange of wounded and dead after the Battle of Port Royal and the release by Jackson of prisoners seized at Winchester.
