Henry W. Lightfoot about Stonewall Jackson --

His dust may rest in the Old Dominion, but his memory, like a star, shall, always shine above every Southern home, an inspiration and a guide. We shall teach our children to keep his honored name, and when future generations shall ask who and what was this mighty "Stonewall?" it shall be answered that he was a man whose every purpose In life was anchored to the steadfast rock of faith; whose highest ambition was duty, well performed; whoso matchless courage knew no defeat; whose love was as deep as the heaving bosom of the ocean and whose patriotism was grandly lifted above self, until it saw only God and his country.
