Summary:Sign depicting Stonewall Jackson's marches, Shenandoah Valley, Virginia, circa 1951-1980. Includes map outlining Jackson's marches. Sign reads: "Stonewall Jackson's marches - The Shenandoah Valley below was the scene of much of Confederate General Thomas J. 'Stonewall' Jackson's activity during the first two years of the Civil War. His swift and secret marches earned his troops the name of 'foot cavalry.' Jackson's valley campaign supplied the lean Confederacy with captured materials of war. His victories resulted in many Union troops being withheld from the first sustained campaign against Richmond for the defense of Washington, D.C." Postcard number: 61630-B.
