Stonewall Jackson is History Alive!

June 7, 2019 @ 9:01 pm

Born in Clarksburg, Jackson was an orphan who became one of the most recognized names in military history. He is regarded by experts as a tactical genius and a relentless battlefield commander. The men of the “Stonewall Brigade” were fiercely loyal to their leader. Jackson’s death by friendly fire was a crushing blow to Confederate hopes for ultimate victory. Portrayed by Doug Riley of Tunnelton, this History Alive! program made possible by the West Virginia Humanities Council begins at 7:00 p.m. at Beech Fork State Park activities building. Free and open to the public.

History Alive is a program of first-person portrayals of historical figures by presenters who have conducted scholarly research on their character.
