Wrong Place, Right Leader…

“It was indeed seldom that [Southern] officers were guilty of cowardice upon the field of battle; but they were often in the wrong place, fighting as common soldiers, when they should have been directing others.”

General Stonewall Jackson (1924 to 1863)

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