The Civil War, Day by Day

A Fleeting Moment


A Fleeting Moment

Mary Anna Morrison Jackson, a minister’s daughter, shared an extraordinary love with her husband that was founded and flourished on a shared faith in God.

In the winter of 1861-62, Mary Anna left their Lexington, Virginia home and joined Jackson at his Winchester headquarters, from where he conducted his famed Valley Campaign. As he routinely moved through his army, leaving nothing unchecked, he had ample opportunity to spend time with his beloved Mary Anna. Without question, the interlude in Winchester brought Jackson some of his dearest moments of the war. In early 1862, more accomplishments, more fame, more glory awaited him.

Jackson savored the blessings of his relationship with his beloved wife. To the end, Stonewall and Mary Anna Jackson would be bound by a deep and abiding commitment — a commitment shaped by the Biblical love that “never fails.”
