Happy Birthday to...

 ...Stonewall Jackson.

Here is one of my favorite quotes from him:

“My religious belief teaches me to
 feel as safe in battle as in bed. 
God has fixed the time for my death. 
I do not concern myself about that, 
but to be always ready, 
no matter when it may overtake me. 
That is the way all men should live, 
and then all would be equally brave.”
 ~General Jackson
