County Named for Confederate HeroGeneral "Stonewall" Jackson
1824 - 1863

Gen. Barnard E. Bee, a Texan, gave him the famous sobriquet in first Battle of Manassas. Jackson was rallying his men for a charge as other units retreated. Bee seeing him cried to his men, "There is Jackson standing like a stone wall. Let us determine to die here, and we will conquer." 🔻 In Battles of Gaines Mill and Malvern Hill, Hood's famous Texas Brigade fought under his command. After Gaines Mill when Jackson saw the strong Union fortified position which the Texans had overrun, he—not known to give praise—said, "The men that took this position were soldiers indeed."
