I was surprised to find this grave marker around General Thomas (Stonewall) Jackson’s statue and grave marker in Lexington, VA.
The inscription is for Stonewall Jackson’s grandson, Thomas Jonathan Jackson Christian (1915-1944)
This Jackson served in the Army Air Corp during WW2 and reached the rank of Colonel. He had quite the career which you can read about here.
The picture features a number of P-51 fighters but the one on the foreground is Col. Jackson’s. The name on the plane is Lou IV, named for Jackson’s daughter whom he never met.
I had no idea.
