Synopsis by Sally Barber
From the four-tape set Civil War Legends, Stonewall Jackson chronicles the personal and military history of the iconoclastic Confederate general. Visits to historical landmarks, artist renderings, and archival photos trace Stonewall's life from his boyhood in the Appalachians, to combat duty in the Mexican War, to the general's strategic role in the Civil War. Other videos in the series highlighting the figures who shaped the outcome of the Civil War include Abraham Lincoln, Robert E. Lee, and Ulysses S. Grant.
