Confederate General: Stonewall Jacksonby Robin S. Doak, Babs Melton, Alexa L. Sandmann
During the Civil War, Colonel Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson inspired Southerners time and again with his determination and confidence. His firm stand and clever strategies turned Confederate despair into hope, and defeat into victories that baffled Union troops and caused them to retreat. But a tragedy ended his life at the age of 39, in the middle of a war that was not yet over. It was an unexpected turn of events for Southerners, an event that possibly cost them the war.
