A walk back through time. Focus on pre-Civil War was nice - not the standard fare of campaigns and 'glory'.

This is a very well preserved home that once housed Stonewall Jackson. The most interesting things were the unusual facts we heard about Mr. Jackson.

We had no idea Stonewall Jackson's house and grave were in this city until after we arrived. We toured the house and had an amazing, passionate tour guide who knew his stuff. Learned so much about Jackson that was never taught in school.

He was a very religious man. He would sit and look at the wall and meditate. He also would memorize his lecture for the following day's class at VMI.
