Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson was a Confederate general during the American Civil War. He earned his nickname at the First Battle of Manassas, when he and his men stood firm while most of the Confederate forces retreated. He demonstrated his tactical brilliance during the Shenandoah Campaign, where he skillfully fought off much larger Union forces. At the Battle of Charlottesville, he was shot and killed by his own men. He was noted for his habit of sucking lemons.
