Wednesday, last week, I had the privilege of speaking to the Stonewall Ruritan Club of McDowell, Virginia. My topic was, appropriately, Stonewall Jackson, his time in Lexington, and his black Sunday school class. There were about 30 folks in attendance which is over 1% of the total population of Highland County. Not bad. As most CW buffs know, McDowell was the site of what is considered the beginning of Jackson's Valley Campaign. Below are some photos I took in and around McDowell last week.
