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.” Jackson had his enemies but history teaches us that Jackson was respected and admired by most. We would do well to emanate the life of Thomas Jonathan Jackson.
