"My Beloved Esposa"

The great military exploits of Confederate General "Stonewall" Jackson are studied in military schools the world over. His iron-will and stern self-discipline are legendary. But the real Thomas J. Jackson was also a humble Christian and loving husband and father. The tender and instructive letters he wrote to his wife Anna are a model of godly leadership and covenantal faithfulness. Christians of the twenty-first Century should look to the examples of our forefathers for instruction, especially when they provide such dedication to living for God's glory and trusting in His Providential care.
