In the Fall of 1855 thirty-one year old Thomas Jackson, soon to be known as the beloved Confederate General “Stonewall” Jackson, opened up a Sunday school for some 100 African Americans in Lexington, Virginia. He gave lessons and sermons himself, and donated money to the small church, which he and his local white staff successfully maintained for many years. After Jackson’s death, grateful members of the General’s African-American church donated money toward erecting a monument to him in Lexington, Va.
“Why should the peace of a true Christian be disturbed by anything which man can do unto him? Has not God promised to make all things work together for good to those who love him?”
― Stonewall Jackson
