Fodor's Review

Confederate general Jackson's private life is on display at the Stonewall Jackson House, where he is revealed as a dedicated Presbyterian who was devoted to physical fitness, careful with money, musically inclined, and fond of gardening. The general lived here only two years, while teaching physics and military tactics to the cadets, before leaving for his command in the Civil War. This is the only house he ever owned; it's furnished now with period pieces and some of

his belongings.

So-So Tour

We enjoyed our visit; the guide was very young and didn't really seem to be enthusiastic about her presentation, but the tour wasn't expensive and worth going to.n If you'd like a real feel for the man, go to Guinea Station near Fredericksburg (where Stonewall actually died).
