“Stonewall” Jackson, still controversial 150 years on

jb_nation_stonewall_1_mMy May 2013 story on Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson ran on several websites, including Alternet and Southern Partisan. It generated a string of rabid commentary in favor and against Jackson on the Raw Story site (since deleted). Who knew I was going to re-start the Civil War? These days the first thing that comes up when you Google “Stonewall” is not a bio of the Confederate general, but the Wikipedia page on the 1969 gay riots in New York. Either way, here my story as it ran on the AFP site.
