The Stone House

Battle of First Manassas – Where Thomas Jonathan Jackson Earned His Nickname “Stonewall Jackson”

During the First Battle of Manassas Jackson, a supporter of the Union before the state of Virginia decided to secede to the Confederacy, led an assault against federal troops near the Stone House. During the battle, one of Jackon’s fellow generals said, “Look, men, there is Jackson standing like a stone wall!”

In 1938, the Sons of the Confederacy erected a statute of General Stonewall Jackson on the Manassas Battlefield site.
