Actually you can say he was a Virginian who was born and raised in the USA, went to West Point, and when he state seceded from the US to create a new country, which they had every right to do under the Constitution, he fought for his State with bravery and skill until he was shot by by accident by his own men while he was performing reconnaissance.

dkulprit: Weatherkiss: But how will future generations of Americans know that someone wasn't the father?

I know the feeling one day my daughter is going to ask "daddy, who was stonewall Jackson", and I won't know what to tell her.  I won't have a giant statue of a man displayed heroically to tell her:

"He was a piece shiat who went to war to own people like livestock and beasts of burden."

But without all these statues I will say "who?  I don't know, he may have been have been someone who did something with a stone wall?"

Then she'll say "we learned about him in school, he seemed like a bad man."

And then I'll say, "must be lies, the only history we have is in statues and schools wouldn't teach you about something that didn't have a statue."

And then her crying "but I learned about it today."

And then I'll say "quit lying without statues there's no history, without statues either you're lying or those 'liberal intellectuals' are lying to your now go daddy a Budweiser before he takes off his belt like liars deserve."

Related sidenote: the PDF for the new Deadland RPG rules got released earlier this week, and it features a revised Timeline with the CSA ultimately losing in 1871 instead of the Civil War dragging on into the 1880's and still ongoing in the game with the Confederacy being more 'enlightened' and freeing all their slaves @1870 like the past editions did.

So, yeah. The one RPG that made being a CSA character a 'neutral moral choice' and went out of it's way to craft a 'heritage not hate' view of the CSA gave up that particular fight.

His statue, erected in 1929,

64 years after his cute traitorous escapades.

..........and at the war's end (1865) he went to Mexico, where the emperor Maximilian made him imperial commissioner of immigration so that Maury could establish a Confederate colony there.

/but i guess they erected his statue because he was an oceanographer like Cousteau.
//a very much racist Cousteau.
