Thomas Jonathan Jackson was a hero from humble beginnings. Orphaned at a young age and raised by various relatives, Jackson worked tirelessly to earn an appointment to the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York. So began his military career. With the outbreak of the American Civil War, Jackson defended his home state of Virginia, joining the Confederate army and rising in its ranks until he was mortally wounded by friendly fire in 1863.
