Stonewall Jackson

Thomas Jonathan Jackson (1824-63) was a Confederate general in the American Civil War. He earned the name "Stonewall" after the First Battle of Bull Run (called the First Battle of Manassas by Southern sources). Jackson was one of the most well known officials. He was killed after the Battle of Chancellorsville, Virginia, but his death became a symbol of heroism.
