Several years ago in a Civil WAr magazine I read an account that stated Lt. George Corbett of the 18th North Carolina was the officer who ordered the volley that wounded Stonewall Jackson . I have never seen his name mentioned since ,not even in the Robert Krick book about the wounding. I appreciate and thank you for any information on this .
