The subject, commonly known as "Stonewall" Jackson, was the second son of Jonathan Jackson and Julia Beckwith (Neale) Jackson of Clarksburg, Virginia (now West Virginia). He graduated from West Point in 1846 and immediately distinguished himself in the Mexican War, rising to brevet major by 1848. He was made a brigadier general in the Confederate Army, and died tragically--he was fired upon by his own men--returning from a successful rout near Chancellorsville.
