One story says Lee's right hand man,T J Jackson got the name 'Stonewall' at the first battle of Bull Run,in which troops withstood
the Federal onslaught at a moment when other Confederates fled. 'There is Jackson, standing there like a stone wall', said
a fellow officer.
On that same day, Jackson had exhorted his men to, 'Yell like furies when you charge!' The distintive yell that resulted from
the order has been associated with the Confedrate cause ever since. Jackson was tone deaf and couldnt carry the tune of Dixie
no matter how many times he heard it. But, the music of the Rebel Yell, always aroused him. An eyewittness reported;Jackson
was greeted with the yell whenever he made his appearance and just as always he would sieze his old grey cap from his head
in acknowledgement and his little sorrel, knowing his habit, would break into a gallop and not cease until the shout had ceased.
One night, Jacksons entire army decided to spontaneously serenade him with a long drawn out Rebel yell. Jackson said, 'That
was the grandest music I ever heard.'
