Prelude to "Heavy Traffic on the Valley Pike"

In 1998, I painted Jackson Commandeers the Railroad. At the time, it was one of the most difficult paintings I had ever done and it was announced as the first in a series of two paintings. This complex piece depicted Jackson organizing a joint military-civilian operation in the railroad yards of Martinsburg, Virginia.
