Stonewall Jackson, brilliant Civil war general, captivating figure from the civil war and has Mary Tyler Moore as a descendant! This place was terrific! The docent working the day I visited was funny, informative and I believe he was old enough to have seen battle with the Army of Northern Virginia! LOL. The building is as it was in 1862. The displays were great and the overall feel of this place took me back.
The irony is just down the street and a few blocks over stands General Phillip Sheridan's headquarters which now is a GIFTSHOP with only a small plaque explaining what this place was to everyone then and now. Being southern has it's advantages.
