The Reliable Volunteer…

“The patriot volunteer, fighting for country and his rights, makes the most reliable soldier on earth.”

Stonewall Jackson (1824 to 1863)

Stonewall Jackson, byname of Thomas Jonathan Jackson, was a Confederate general in the American Civil War, one of its most skillful tacticians, who gained his sobriquet “Stonewall” by his stand at the First Battle of Bull Run (called First Manassas by the South) in 1861.
