Stonewall Jackson Shrine

On Sunday, May 10, 1863 at 3:15 pm EST Confederate General, Thomas Jonathan Jackson died in a white-frame doctor's office, near the Guinea train station on the old Chandler Plantation known as "Fairfield" in Caroline County, Virginia. When Virginia seceded from the Union in April 1861, Jackson volunteered to serve his state and quickly organized a group of amateur soldiers into an effective army brigade. Jackson earned his nickname "Stonewall" at the first battle of Manassas. The adjacent brick plantation house burned in the early 1900s and was dismantled, but the office remains.
