Some in the South feel the same way about Robert E. Lee.:D


I've often wondered why Stonewall Jackson isn't more prominent in Southerners' hearts than Lee is.  I know that he sometimes looked silly shabbily dressed sucking on a lemon holding one arm in the air, but his exploits in the Shenandoah Valley were as impressive if not more impressive than Napoleon's Italian campaign.  Also, Jackson gave his life to the cause and was done in by friendly fire.

R. E. Lee was great but a lot of his greatest victories were at least partly due to Jackson.  Jackson was to Magic as Lee was to Riley.

I know I'm hijacking this thread but it's my thread and it's been more or less hijacked already.
