Living in the Land of Cotton

This series is based on primary sources. By that I mean they are books published before “Lincoln’s War” and books published going into the 1930s. Much of what you will read are quotes and narratives from these sources. At times, I will interject my thoughts but centered on what the source stated. The desired outcome for this new series is that the reader might be inspired, encouraged and become more proactive for the truths of history.

Stonewall Jackson was well loved and respected by many around the world. Why — because he was a principled man. Jackson had a high regard for duty. You would hear him say, “Through life let your principal object be the discharge of duty.” This was the man — Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. A Godly man — a role model then — and a role model today. We would be wise to keep in mind Jackson’s favorite maxim was … “Duty is ours; consequences are God’s.”
