Hi I am Thomas Jonathan Jackson
You might know me as Stonewall Jackson
My Life Story
I was born in in Clarksburg Virginia which is now West Virginia
In 1842 I signed up for military acadamy in West Point, NY
After I hardly got in I got teased alot which gave me motivation to succeed
I graduated 17th of 59 in my class just in time to fight the Spanish-American War!!!
I showed my bravery and became a general during many battles
Then I retired in 1851 and became a teacher at Virginia Military Institute in Lexington
THE FIRST BULL RUN
I am a general of the confederate army
i got my nickname during this battle
Here comes the Union
When I shot General Bee he said a few words that caught on and became my nickname
"There is Jackson standing like a stone wall."
Durring the Battle of Chancellorsville I struck the Unions army from the back and General John Hooker had no choice but to retreat within days.
FEW DAYS LATER
May 2, 1863
Im so sorry
OW YOU JUST SHOT ME!!!!!!
Stonewall Jackson was accidently shot by the 18th North Carolina Infantry Regiment which was friendly fiire.
He was transported to a nearby hospital right afterwards
We are very sorry but we have to amputate your arm Mr. Jackson
Not long after the amputation Stonewall Jackson died on May 10, 1863 from the amputation because he got an infection on his arm.
He was only 39
Thats the story of Stonewall Jackson
