That being said, couldn't we say that Stonewall Jackson is overrated? That's not to say he wasn't great, but in some circles, it seems he's reached God-like status.

What!!!!! :shock:

Actually here in the South, most of our Generals are held in VERY high regards. Lee, Stuart, Jackson are all revered in the manner you mention. Rightfully so (in my opinion). BUT I can see your point - as someone not living here. To many tourists, our area may seem peculiar with all of the monuments and tributes to them. To the locals, it's perfectly natural.
