Just returned from a relatively short bike ride through town. I took a few photographs of the area around Court House Square including this one of Stonewall Jackson. I much prefer this statue of Jackson as opposed to the Gold’s Gym version up at Manassas; it has just the right proportions and nicely captures Jackson’s prowess. I would have taken some pictures of the Lee statue, but unfortunately a woman was relieving herself at the monument’s base. Well, I guess we all have our way of showing our appreciation for the good general. Additional photos can be found here.

"In this stunning and well-researched book, Kevin Levin catches the new waves of the study of memory, black soldiers, and the darker underside of the Civil War as well as anyone has... Levin is both superb scholar and public historian, showing us a piece of the real war that does now get into the books, as well as into site interpretation."
David Blight, Author of Race and Reunion
