a postcard of the Stonewall Jackson Shrine, Guinea, V., a part of the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park, Fredericksburg, VA. In this house Stonewall Jackson died May 10, 1863. In a visit to this area in 1928 Winston Churchill is reputed to have said, "That little house witnessed the downfall of the Confederacy."
Letter on paper from 'The All States Hotel in Washington D.C. attached to the back of the photo. 'Monument over the grave of 'Stonewall' Jackson at Lexington, Va. where he was a professor at the Va. Military Institute. Mrs. Lyne attended his funeral services where he lay in state at the Va. Capitol. She was one of the little brand of Confederate ladies who met in the Presbyterian Church in the Capitol of the Confederacy, to organize Memorial Day - when Va. was Military District, No.1. - when no Southerners could form a procession and ride in the carriages by Federal Law - yet they went on foot. The Unknown and Hollywood cemeteries all scattered roses over the Confederate dead.
