    [FONT=&quot]Thomas Jonathan &#8220;Stonewall&#8221; <st1:city w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Jackson</st1:place></st1:city> is probably the most well-known Confederate commander after General Robert E.

Among his classmates were the Confederate General James Longstreet and the Union General Abner Doubleday (reputed inventor of baseball). He fought in the Mexican War where received two battlefield promotions. In 1851 he resigned from the Army to accepted a teaching position at the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) in <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:city w:st="on">Lexington</st1:city> <st1:state w:st="on">VA.</st1:state></st1:place>

    [FONT=&quot]Jackson rose to prominence and earned his nickname at the First Battle of Manassas (Bull Run) on July 21, 1861. As the Confederate lines began to crumble under heavy Union assault, Jackson's brigade provided crucial reinforcements on Henry House Hill, demonstrating the discipline he instilled in his men. Brig. Gen. Barnard Elliott Bee, Jr., exhorted his own troops to re-form by shouting, "There is Jackson standing like a stone wall. Let us determine to die here, and we will conquer. Rally behind the Virginians!" There is some controversy over Bee's statement and intent, which could not be clarified because he was killed almost immediately after speaking and none of his subordinate officers wrote reports of the battle. Major Burnett Rhett, chief of staff to General Joseph E. Johnston, claimed that Bee was angry at Jackson's failure to come immediately to the relief of Bee's and Bartow's brigades while they were under heavy pressure. Those who subscribe to this opinion believe that Bee's statement was meant to be pejorative: "Look at Jackson standing there like a damned stone wall!" [/FONT][FONT=&quot]<o:p></o:p>[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]Jackson's troops served well under Lee in this series of, but <st1:city u1:st="on"><st1:place u1:st="on">Jackson</st1:place></st1:city>'s own performance in those battles is generally considered to be poor. He arrived late at Mechanicsville and inexplicably ordered his men to bivouac for the night within clear earshot of the battle. He was late and disoriented at Gaines Mill. At White Oak Swamp he failed to employ fording places to cross White Oak Swamp Creek, attempting for hours to rebuild a bridge, which limited his involvement to an ineffectual artillery duel and a missed opportunity. At Malvern Hill <st1:city u1:st="on"><st1:place u1:st="on">Jackson</st1:place></st1:city> participated in the futile, piecemeal frontal assaults against entrenched Union infantry and massed artillery, and suffered heavy casualties (but this was a problem for all of Lee's army in that ill-considered battle). The reasons for <st1:city u1:st="on">Jackson</st1:city>'s sluggish and poorly-coordinated actions during the Seven Days are disputed, although a severe lack of sleep after the grueling march and railroad trip from the <st1:place u1:st="on">Shenandoah Valley</st1:place> was probably a significant factor. Both <st1:city u1:st="on"><st1:place u1:st="on">Jackson</st1:place></st1:city> and his troops were completely exhausted.[/FONT]
    <u2:p></u2:p>[FONT=&quot]This marked the end of the Peninsula Campaign by the <st1:place u1:st="on">Union</st1:place> and Lee felt secure enough to move his forces north. <st1:city u1:st="on">Jackson</st1:city> marched to <st1:place u1:st="on"><st1:city u1:st="on">Gordonsville</st1:city> <st1:state u1:st="on">VA</st1:state></st1:place> and on August 9 fought Gen Pope in the Battle of Cedar Mountain.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]Jackson then moved north and participated in Second Manassas, which was fought on virtually the same ground as First Manassas[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]When Lee decided to invade the North in the Maryland Campaign, Jackson took Harpers Ferry, then hastened to join the rest of the army at <st1:place u1:st="on"><st1:city u1:st="on">Sharpsburg</st1:city> <st1:state u1:st="on">MD</st1:state></st1:place>, where they fought McClellan in the Battle of Antietam on September 17. <st1:place u1:st="on">Antietam</st1:place> was primarily a defensive battle fought against superior odds, although McClellan failed to exploit his advantage. <st1:city u1:st="on"><st1:place u1:st="on">Jackson</st1:place></st1:city>'s men bore the brunt of the initial attacks on the northern end of the battlefield. The Confederate forces held their position, but the battle was extremely bloody for both sides. It was the bloodiest single day battle in <st1:country-region u1:st="on"><st1:place u1:st="on">US</st1:place></st1:country-region> history. Lee withdrew back across the <st1:place u1:st="on">Potomac River</st1:place>, ending the invasion. <st1:city u1:st="on"><st1:place u1:st="on">Jackson</st1:place></st1:city> was promoted to lieutenant general. On October 10 his command was redesignated the Second Corps.[/FONT]

    A statue of a soldier on a horse should tell you how a solider died.

    Horse standing on all four legs--natural death
    Horse on three legs--died of wounds from battle
    Horse on two legs (rearing up) --died in battle

    Nice report. I had the same idea last year but spent most of it mending bones instead of riding. James I. Robertson Jr. wrote an excellent biography on the life of Jackson. If you want to know more about the man this is the best book I have read on him.

    BTW is this the tunnel you were looking for? It was a tagged in the Valley Dual Sport Tag game earlier this year.

    I think it is since he died from pneumonia (not from his wounds or in battle). Nevertheless, history is always interesting - his VMI students did not like him to the point of throwing bricks out barracks windows at him.

    Very frustrating that we didn't find it
    and from the photo it looks like it should be obvious where it is.

    Lakota - After your Lab trip, I read your Stonewall report. I enjoyed it because in 2002 I was on temporary assignment in DC and I had a little Super Moto to scoot around on. I spent the year reading Shelby Foote's trilogy of the Civil War and riding out to visit the fields on the weekends. It was great. My favs were Gettysburg, Antietam, and Fredricksburg.

    In 2007 on a whim, I took a week to hit more battlefields in sort of a big loop. I hit Gettysburg again, Chicamauga Creek, Mobile, New Orleans and then took the 'Trace' to see Shiloh Church. As you know these battles were fought at different times, and not in succession, so the order was more about my route. You might skim it.
