Faith Stories: The Bravery of Stonewall Jackson

  • Captain, my religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me....That is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave.

  • On his death bed:
    I see from the number of physicians that you think my condition dangerous, but I thank God, if it is His will, that I am ready to go.

  • Last words:
    Let us cross over the river, and rest under the shade of the trees . . .
