I thoroughly enjoyed the Clyde Wilson piece which I printed off a while back - have shared that one around because I thought it was so good.I am about 3/4 of the way through your book, I am so interested in Stonewall Jackson and his influence and contribution to Lexington. There is so much more to him than meets the eye and you do a phenomenal job thoroughly explaining it all. Stonewall Jackson and the blacks that love and revere him are a testament that humility, kindness and compassion for other human beings should be colorblind.I am taking an evening seminar at the VA Historical Society and when the presenter got to a segment on Stonewall Jackson he started with, "Now let's talk about our famous Presbyterian." Thanks to your book I was in on the joke! He did an excellent job (I thought) talking about Jackson in 1862.
Hey Lindsay, thank you - glad you're enjoying the book. But what Clyde Wilson piece are you talking about under those links? Were you referring to the "must reads" page?
Yes, sorry - it is the one you have up on the must-reads page.
Yes, Professor Wilson articulates that position very nicely.
