This site is designed to help us learn about Social Studies and other areas of interest "beyond the classroom." I plan to enter a post at least once a week, so I hope you join us in this conversation on learning.

"People who are anxious to bring on war don't know what they are bargaining for; they don't see all the horrors that must accompany such an event."
--Lt. General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson
"Captain Smith sprang to his side, and as he raised his head a bright beam of moonlight made its way through the thick foliage and rested upon the pale face of the sufferer. The captain was startled by its great pallor and stillness, and cried out: "Oh! General, are you seriously hurt?"
"No," he answered, "don't trouble yourself, my friend, about me;" 
"Death of Stonewall Jackson", Dr. Hunter McGuire, Medical Director of Jackson's Corps.
