When T.J. "Stonewall" Jackson was wounded in May 1863, his handkerchief was used to help stop the flow of blood from the wound. That handkerchief was a fine linen, corded handkerchief and measured approximately 17 inches x 17 inches. We are excited to be able to provide a gentleman's fine linen, corded handkerchief that looks extremely similar to the handkerchief carried by Jackson. Our handkerchiefs are 100% fine Irish linen and are corded on all borders and measures 17x17 inches. They are woven in Ireland by a handkerchief weaver who began doing business in 1854. Period practice was to write the owners name above the cords. I have one of a Massachusetts soldier killed at Cold Harbor and his name is written in cursive just above the cords.
