I had pre-arranged for Colonel Keith Gibson to give us a short talk about Stonewall Jackson when we arrived at VMI. He didn’t do that. Instead, he escorted our group on a special 2 hour tour including Jackson Memorial Hall and museum, various buildings around the Institute, inviting us to a special event in the Courtyard/Quadrangle (it was alumni weekend), lunch in Crozet Hall, and an impromptu lecture at the Lee-Jackson House; as well as one at Lee’s
A few shots from the tour: Colonel Gibson holding forth and some calling cards that Union General David Hunter left for VMI during his raid in 1864. I’ll post some more images from the tour later this week.
