Stonewall Jackson Shrine

On Sunday, May 10, 1863 at 3:15 pm EST Confederate General, Thomas Jonathan Jackson died in a white-frame doctor's office, near the Guinea train station on the old Chandler Plantation known as "Fairfield" in Caroline County, Virginia. When Virginia seceded from the Union in April 1861, Jackson volunteered to serve his state and quickly organized a group of amateur soldiers into an effective army brigade. Jackson earned his nickname "Stonewall" at the first battle of Manassas. The adjacent brick plantation house burned in the early 1900s and was dismantled, but the office remains.

Olmstead Island Maryland

A very pleasant way for a Washingtonian to spend a warm winter's afternoon is to pay a visit to Olmstead Island in the Potomac River. The trail is placid enough for senior citizens to enjoy; my three year-old son found the trail to be fun and easy. The series of bridges and boardwalks provide vistas of Olmstead Island and the Potomac River. Bridges traverse a unique floodplain, granite-terrace environment and there are even flowers unique to this gorge. At the end of the Olmstead Island Bride nature walk lies a Great Falls overlook, in addition to a spectacular view of the head of Mather Gorge. Handicapped accessible, however, dogs are not permitted (except service dogs).
