The original "Last Meeting of Lee and Jackson" is an oil on canvas painting by Everett B. D. Julio in 1869 depicting Robert E. Lee on "Traveller" and Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson on "Little Sorrel". The provenance of the original painting, according to The American Civil War Museum, is as follows:
"Everette Julio depicted a romanticized version of Generals Lee and Jackson's last meeting during the pre-dawn hours of May 2, 1863, before the Battle of Chancellorsville. After this meeting, Jackson led his men on the famous march around the Union troops for a surprise attack in the afternoon. After the successful attack, Jackson was mortally wounded by his own men in the evening. Julio wanted to be the historian-painter of the South. However, "Last Meeting" turned out to be the artist's first and last heroic Confederate painting. He died in 1879, in debt, without ever selling the painting. After Julio's death, Col. John B. Richardson of the Washington Artillery (Louisiana) bought "Last Meeting" from his estate."
The Alexandria National Bank was establised on November 1, 1904 and became inactive on April 4, 1978.
