A Lowcountry Morning ...



“Let us cross over the river, and rest in the shade of the trees.”
            ~ Stonewall Jackson
               ~  1824-1863
The last words of Thomas Jonathan “Stonewall” Jackson, who served as a Confederate general (1861-1863) during the Civil War, and became arguably the best-known Confederate commander after General Robert E. Lee. Jackson played a prominent role in nearly all military engagements in the Eastern Theater of the war until his death, and had an important part in winning many significant battles.
