Norman Richard Fitzhugh

Jeb Stuart's Headquarters in Northern Virginia by Frank Vizetelly - Oct-Nov 1862

The artist writes: "Genl Stuart's Head Quarters, Advanced Post of the Confederate Army in Northern Virginia - Genl Stuart who commanded the cavalry division of the Confederate army, has his head quarters at the extreme advance, the whole of the picket line being kept by troopers. I have been staying with the general & his Staff for some time & my tent is the further one on the right under the shadow of a tree decked in all the glorious colours of bright autumnal plumage. Round the campfire in the in the foreground are grouped the general & various members of his staff, the former standing with his hands behind him watching the approach of some prisoners with their escort. To his right is seated his adjutant General, Norman Fitzhugh, a good name, who is looking through some New York papers that have been sent in from the outposts. The open fly beneath the oak is the bed chamber, sitting room, & dining room of General Stuart."

Words on back "A scene in the camp of Jeb Stuart showing group of men around campfire. In foreground showing Stuart, General Norman Fitzhugh, and other staff members. Also shows tent-quarters of General Stuart." In reality, Norman Fitzhugh (far left), my g-g-grandfather, was only a Major.
