The medal's obverse design depicts five soldiers. In the foreground, Stonewall Jackson is shown on his knees with his proper left hand grasping his proper right shoulder. A man stands at his proper left side, gesturing to the right. A third man runs toward the injured Stonewall. Two other soldiers are shown grasping rifles in the background. On the reverse, Confederate and United States flags are pictured intersecting at the top of the medal. Several rifles appear behind the flags, and the image of an eagle is placed at the center of the intersection. At the medal's bottom, a decorative border lines the edge.
