|Stonewall by Bradley Schmehl
~ "Stonewall" Thomas Jonathan Jackson 1824 - 1863 General
Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson is portrayed here in his plain
gray uniform and butternut kepi, as he appeared during 1862. In the eyes
of those people to whom his reputation preceded his appearance, he never
failed to disappoint: one Yank whose unit had surrendered to Jackson's
forces at Harpers Ferry stated that Jackson was " in no respect to
be distinguished from the mongrel barefooted crew that followed his
fortunes." No other Civil War figure garnered such military fame as
Stonewall, either among friend or foe. During his career his reputation
spread across America and over the seas, and many of his day believed
that had he survived, the Confederate quest for independence may well
have been realized. His devotion to God, duty and country are a legacy
that has and will continue to be treasured by many Americans.
